'Jelvehesque' Focal

Lampwork Glass Focal BeadYep, this one is totally inspired by Jelveh and her beads. Jelveh gave me a large pair of mashers so I could make big focal beads as my old mashers were only 20mm square. The bead is a mix of purples with glittery goldstone stringerwork and raised multicoloured bumps.

Lampwork Glass Focal BeadI took the photographs in the sunlight. This beauty would make a marvellous pendant, don't you think? It'll be for sale in my Etsy shop shortly .....

Thanks for inspiring me, Jelveh!

That's a real beauty! Is it the same on the back or smooth? It will be a gorgeous pendant but we really need some smaller ones as earrings to match now! :-)
