Blue Flower Blossom Lampwork Glass Focal Bead
Two layers of blue petals form this pretty Spring blossom. Cornflower and sky blue contrast and yet go so well together.This flower has a 1/16th hole that may be strung horizontally or vertically. The hole is on a base bead, and the petals were formed over the top of the bead.
Sally Found A Seashell Lampwork Glass Focal Bead
I am not sure where Sally found this gorgeous dark ivory shell with swirl and flourish details.. It looks like maybe the Turks and Caicos. But I'm not sure.This one is about .9" tall with a 1/16th hole through the middle. You can see that it has a swirl pattern and a sweet ruffled lip.Thanks for helping us out. Sally goes wild sometimes and I just sell them.
Green Fairy Mushroom Lampwork Focal Bead
love a little sparkle. This time, it's in a green fairy mushroom. I just had the idea that a Spring time shroom, might be kind of fun. It would look cute with some little flowers or even a fairy.I'd also like it on one of my double beadstands along with another character bead.This little mushroom is about an inch tall and has a 1/16th vertical hole.
Svetlana the Fish Lampwork Glass Focal Bead
Meet Svetlana. She works at the make up counter at Bloomingfishes Department Store. You can probably tell that she's currently into those special "plumping" formulas. She's already done her cheeks and now trying the one for lips. Svetlana saw that they gave one's lips a "glass like finish" and knew it was right for her. She loves trying to look exotic and of course changed her name. She grew up as Sara Anne, but thought Svetlana sounded better.Svetlana has a vertical 1/16th hole, and is cute as button. (A cute button, I guess)
