One-of-a-kind, Royal blue art glass drape with silver luster and satin finish personally signed by artist "William Berth".
This bead is great worn alone horizontally on a necklace. It would also be wonderful used as a focal bead in a custom beaded creation.
These hot furnace lusterware art glass beads are hand shaped on a mandrel and tooled to this design. The actual color of the bead is determined by the maker after subjecting the bead to metal salts. It is then flame treated which develops degrees of reflectivity giving the bead either an irridescent, satin or matte finish. Gifted artist, William Berth, uses only the finest raw material on the planet, including Silver and Gold, when formulating the glass. This guarantees the superior quality needed to create the luster and iridized finishes for these wearable works of art! Each art glass bead is a prized heirloom that will last the test of time which makes it unique like you and definitely one-of-a-kind!
