I love making Dragon's Eye beads, they each take on a personality of their own! There are now a few one eyed Dragons wandering about ;)
I have used a glossy black glass..with silver glass for the sheen. The eyeball is very realistic and he looks like he is eying up his dinner!
The reverse carried my makers mark for authenticity.
The bead is approximately 28mm high x 27mm wide x 15mm deep with a vertical hole, so it can be used with a bale to be strung.
This bead is completely hand shaped! All beads are made by myself using a duel fuel torch, annealed in a digitally controlled kiln for strength and durability and thoroughly cleaned of all bead release by hand.
