Tiger Bead Set (3)
Tigers! 🐯This mini set features a large focal bead that, while large, is flat and relatively lightweight.
Making these beads is a multi-step process. I create the striped twisties and them mix in some fine silver with ivory glass for added stripey effect.
The base of each bead is black, and the entire bead is heavily encased in clear and topaz for a tigery effect. I then squeezed the large bead into a flat, oval shape to lay nicely.
These beads have a 3/32″ (~3mm) hole – and look great worn together or a few at a time on a simple chain or cord.

I do not use molds or presses to make my beads. Each one is formed ‘freehand’ in the flame. This listing is for the actual bead(s) pictured.
