A new variation on the Pinwheel beads/ pendants, using wings a repetitive pattern unit on a mandrel-wound bead. This bead has a vibrant transparent turquoise heavily encased over white, embellished with repeating butterfly wing patterns in vitreous enamel. The patterning is based on a 8 way division that circulates around each hole of the bead. I love how light gets caught in the heavy encasing and the shadows from the vitreous enamel on the core of the bead.
The bead measures 27mm x 22mm, with a 2.5 mm bead hole (made on a 3/32" mandrel). It comes ready to wear on a length of cotton cord.
