Pink Bubbly Barrel

This pretty bead is comprised of a opaque pink glass wrapped in metal then encased in clear glass.  The bubble effect is created when the glass is heated enough to melt the metal inside.  The bead is then molded into the desired shape and further decorations are added.

The finishings include my handmade sterling silver bead caps and bail and hangs from a 16" sterling silver snake chain.  The bead measures ~22mm long x 17mm wide.
