These lampwork glass beads were handmade in my studio from Effetre Italian glass. It is a continuation of the exploration of pressing glass that began in my Droplet series and which I am calling my Propeller Droplet Disc series. Each bead is comprised of a glass donut bail surrounded by 3 pressed glass discs. The 5 beads are in gradated sizes and shades of transparent green. The beads nestle together next to each other, creating a cluster of overlapping glass planes which adds depth and tones of color to the transparent glass in this modern and minimalist set. Included are 2 light green, 2 medium green and a central dark green bead. They are well-fused and are shown here with spacers that will be included with the beads. I am truly inspired by the possibilities in the manipulation and organization of these glass discs, and will continue this exploration to see where it leads me. The beads measure between approximately 30mm around x 14mm wide to 27.5mm around x 11mm wide (1 1/8" around x 9/16" wide to 1" around x 7/16" wide). Nestled together, the cluster of 3 beads is approximately 36.5mm (1 7/16") wide. The beads have been kiln annealed for longevity and cleaned with a diamond reamer. The beads were created on a 3/32" mandrel. The necklace shown is not included as part of this listing, but can be purchased from me (add request in notes to seller) - 16" 1mm sterling silver omega for $14, 18" 1.5mm omega for $20. I will provide the set on a black rubber necklace unless you request otherwise. Please note that these sets are made to order. The item pictured is not the one you will receive. Please allow for slight variations due to the handmade nature of each item. Please see my shop policies for current turnaround time on custom orders. YOUR ITEM WILL BE CUSTOM MADE FOR EACH ORDER. I am a member of the ISGB, SoCal Flame Surfers and am SRA#H104 and SRAJD #1422. I ship USPS First Class Mail in a padded envelope.

My architectural background has led to a love of clean, colorful and modern styling. I am currently working to translate this aesthetic into the fluid medium of glass. One of my favorite comments about my work is that my beads are like 'liquid color.' I am thrilled by the combination of pure color and clean...
