Okay now comes the hard part...choosing a favorite among all of her gorgeous glass work! Drum roll please...I chose the Retticello Barrel Borosilicate Focal Bead. Isn't it a beauty?!
This bead is made from cobalt blue and clear borosilicate tubing that has been flameworked and fumed with 22ct gold and pure silver which creates the intricate pattern and colours on the surface.

It measures 45mm / 1&3/4inches long and 25mm / 1inch in diameter with a 3mm / 2/16inch hole. This bead is hollow so weighs 24g / 7/8oz.
