Glass Lampwork Bead of the Day for Monday, March 7th, 2011

A new week, a new Monday, and a new lovely bead featured from the Fire Divas!  Today's bead is a monochromatic beauty from Susanne Folin at Babs Beads & Design:
Grayscale Floral Lampwork Bead by Babs Beads & Design

It has a black core, white flowers, and bubbles at the center of each flower. This type of bead is not easy, as the flowers must be carefully encased and the bubbles precisely placed in the center prior to the entire bead being slowly wrapped in clear glass. See Susanne's ArtFire shop for more of her intricate work. 

See what's new in the Fire Divas studios by visiting the ArtFire weekly chat thread and the Etsy weekly thread, each showcasing different beads.  Have a great week!
