These were going to be one big set but in the end I thought I’d split them up. They do go together though, if you had a bigger project in mind!
The lentil beads are quite big and chunky due to the raised surface decoration (they are my usual 18mm lentils, but much thicker than usual; also the raised dots on either side really add to the overall size – each one could easily be a focal bead). They are etched to a soft matte finish.
The rounds are a more donut shaped bead, they are made with frit and encased for magnification. They are not etched.
I used a soft hand pulled opaque lavender along with transparent light purple or light green. The flowers are Creation is Messy Thai Orchid over white.
