This is the first bead design I ever made. I hadn't worked with soft glass, or with mandrels yet. The bead is a mixture of borosillicate colored glass, the center is vibrant dichroic glass and the edges or coated with 24 K fired on gold. This has a loop built into the design and is ready to wear with your favorite chain, or can be incorporated into a designer necklace.
