Ocean glass bead with sterling silver chain .01 shipping
The bead has a core made of fine silver tubing. The jump ring and wire going through the bead are sterling silver.
This bead has a few different steps before it is finally completed. First, the black portion is created. Once the orange glow dissipates, it is wrapped in silver foil which is then burnished. The silver foil is slowly burned off to give it the ‘starry night’ effect. Next, comes the blue glass for the water and the last is the ivory glass for the sand. It is all heated until round and then it is flattened. Different embellishments are then added such as murrini in the sky, murrini for anemones and/or different sea creatures are ‘stamped’ into the sand such as starfish, shells or a turtle. Once all the effects are added, the finished bead then goes into the kiln to be annealed. Annealing removes internal stress that builds up in the glass during creation.
