Blue Wave Bead

Blue wave lampwork focal bead with cubic zirconis

I love making these beads!

I love layering opaque, translucent and transparent colour glass to see how the light shining through illuminates and changes the colours. I love adding fine silver and enamel and seeing all the tiny details emerge from the chemical reaction between the metal and the glass. Last but not least I love swirling the glass into graceful waves and punctuating them with the sparkle of cubic zirconia! 

I’m (also) currently obsessing about photos straight out of my phone... Here’s an unedited one of the bead lying down, it could do with a touch of brightening up but other than that it's pretty good. I really need to repaint that wood though!
