The range is bright and mis-matched for carefree days. Coloured Italian glass, shaped into dotty, lentil shaped beads on earrings, necklaces and bracelets. There will be some slight variations in colour, pattern and size.
Also known as flameworking or torchworking, the result is colourful. Once formed, the beads are annealed (heated) in a kiln and gradually cooled down to room temperature over a period of some 12 hours.
