These unusual beads started out round - then I added deeply twisted tornadoes on opposide sides. I started by making a round transparent blue core bead, then wrapped it 'round and 'round with StrikingColor glass. I superheated the glass and twisted it up into two cones on each bead, giving each one an organic shape and swirls of variegated color. This set is unique, cool, fun, textural, colorful, and definitely eye-catching! Combined with twelve Czech glass ring spacer beads in dark blue iris.

These beads were made on 3/32" mandrels. The smallest beads are approx. 11mm X up to 17mm, the largest are approx. 12mm X up to 23mm.

The chocolate kiss is shown for size comparison only - these beads are sweet enough!
