Lampwork Bead of the Day: Monday, August 29th

Happy Monday!  It's still HOT in large parts of the country, but very WET and rainy in others... in line with the crazy weather we're having lately, please take a moment to enjoy this earth-inspired bead by Susan Lambert:

Lampwork bead focal lentil shaped Earthview - by Susan Lambert

This focal bead has a ton of variety and detail, and if you know anything about my usual choices for Bead of the Day, you probably know that I LOVE detail like this, especially ones that are impossible to duplicate!  A little of this, a pinch of that, some glass dust, crackly turquoise-colored glass, and a very earthy back; this bead has it all.  It make me think of what a primitive view of the earth might have been by (very creative!) ancient civilizations. :)  Susan has more gorgeous beads (though you won't find another one exactly like this no matter where you look!) in her Etsy shop, so please hop on over there to browse around and get your daily lampwork fix.  She also participates in the Bead of the Day discount, which means whomsoever purchases this bead can get 10% off it for the next 24 hours only! Convo her on Etsy prior to checkout. :)

See what the other talented gals on the team are up to by visiting the Etsy weekly thread and the ArtFire weekly thread. Cheers!


  1. What a neat bead! I love all of the different patterns on it.

  2. Yeah, I think it's one of those beads that you notice something different on each time you look at it :)

  3. Beautiful bead Susan - I think you need to make more like this one. Variations on a theme!
