Princess Leia – I hope you can see in the photos the delicate little pink roses lamp-worked onto each of these clear beads. Plus, because the glass of the lamp-worked beads is clear, you can see the gold dust in these photos! The transparent Indian Glass beads are swirled with 22 carat gold dust. You’ll easily see the gold dust when you open the box containing this delightful necklace.
Lamp-work beads are handmade and are formed by heating glass with a blowtorch and then working it into the artist’s desired bead shapes. Pink and white roses are added to these beads by touching the base bead with pink and white melted glass and twisting it slightly to form a rose.
The colors and styles of lamp-work beads can vary widely, according to the artist making them, but the signature look of a lamp-work bead is usually glossy and ornate.
Artisans create the transparent authentic Bohemian handmade glass beads by taking heated glass and pressing it into a mold.
Cats-eye was a very popular stone for engagement rings in Victorian times, when it was known as Chrysolite. In Metaphysics, this stone is reputed to bring wealth and prosperity and to help regain lost wealth. These Cats-eye chips are not natural, but are manufactured by fusing quartz fibers together in order to create the chatoyancy effect of a band of light through it. They are also called fiber-optic beads.
