Blue Bee Tapestry Bead

Artist Statement: Lately I've been in a blue mood - but it's a good thing! I've been making blue beads with my tapestry scrollwork in rich black that I hope you will enjoy!

This cute little honeybee sits amidst intricate tapestry scrollwork on a pale blue background. This would make a sweet little pendant or can be used with my other tapestry beads for a more lavish design.

*this exact bee has sold but yours will be very similar!*

Each bead is handcrafted with Italian glass and wound on a 1/16" mandrel. The decorative scrollwork is made from thin glass "stringer" and is melted directly into the bead. All of my beads are made fresh daily and are annealed straight from the torch in a digitally - controlled kiln for lasting durability.

While I do my best to represent the true colors of my beads, color may vary slightly depending on your monitor.
