This is a beautiful sparkly handmade lampwork glass bead with a large hole that fits my personal Pandora bracelet.  I just listed it in my Supadupa shop.  It has a royal blue base with a speckling layer of silver dichroic glass.  Then I added a layer of transparent clear glass on top to encase it all.

Amethyst Handmade Lampwork Glass Focal Bead With Ripples

Here is a beautiful yet simple lampwork focal bead.  It is made using a transparent medium amethyst glass with a ripple effect around the oblong bead on Artfire, of course!

Rose Quartz Pink Lampwork Glass Lentil Focal Bead

This is a large handmade lampwork glass focal bead.  I have it in my Artfire shop.  It is made the the deliciously beautiful and delicate "true" pink called rose quartz.  I made it with thousands of tiny trapped air bubbles and squeezed it into a lentil shaped bead.

Pearl Gray Peacock Handmade Lampwork Glass Focal Bead

Just listed a beautiful organic focal bead in my Etsy store.  It has a base of light pearl gray with slate blue peacock colors and gold hues scattered around this handmade lampwork glass bead.  It also has some raised dots and a beautiful oil slick metallic shine.

I call this my Ancient Artifact Cave Dwelling Picture.  This will probably be the only one like this.  By the time I finished playing with the corals and pinky beige color and swirling the colors around, an interesting pattern evolved.  It reminds me of an ancient horse drawing in a cave (to me anyways).  The neck and head of the horse have a dark charcoal color with tiny silver specks.  I have kept it for a while just to enjoy it myself for a short period of time.  I have it listed in my artfire store.

Petroleum Ivory Lampwork Glass Bead in my Artfire Shop

Listing a few green handamde lampwork glass focal beads today.  This bead has a cubic zirconia embedded in the raised dot.  It was difficult to photograph.

  You can find it here in my Artfire shop.  As you can see, that poor litte cubic zirconia looks pretty dull.  It really glistens in the sunlight!
