Oh, magic waves of purple! These wave beads are many layers of glass for lots of depth and shine.
The silver-heavy glass that I used to create the color for these waves creates so many colors — from peach to deepest purple — that I can’t stop looking at them. Added bonus: There is a beautiful hazy purple floating in and around the waves.
I started by creating a base of ivory glass on a large mandrel. Then added the silver glass. At this point, I adjusted my flame to bring out the colors ? then I encased (captured!) that color in several layers of clear for a nice water-y depth. Scroll to see a video of these beads in ‘action’!
These beads have a large hole – 4mm (1/8″) – and look great worn together or a few at a time on a simple chain or cord. They are large, chunky beads that are great as single focal pieces or in groups.
These chains fit these beads. The beads may be strung directly on the chain and worn as a group or separately.
