Batik Stones Set No.2
Batik Stones Set 2
Four different sized “stone” beads made with beautiful variegated silver rich brownish yellow ochre glass with rust tones as the base of these beads, and patterned with copper green intricate stringer work to resemble ethnic batik fabric. The patterns are continuous on both sides of the beads, and are predominately a mottled light minty-green color, but have been flame reduced to produce subtle variations of coral pinks and lavender tones for a very rustic feel. Each bead is a different length and size, and have a total strand length of 4 5/8”. Stones are approximately 6-8mm thick, and the widest bead is approx. 1”. Beads have been etched matte for a velvety texture. Beads were made on a 1/16” mandrel, and as always, my beads are properly annealed and cleaned.
