24 Ct Gold Leaf Lamp Work Bead Unset and Signed.
It's good to remember that in the main, beads are more beautiful in the hand than in a photo taken to put them on line. Blowing them up size wise does not necessarily give you the feel, the three dimensions. This bead is made with thick gold leaf, so that the gold does not dissolve into flakes under the casing. The dissolved gold can also be lovely but this is gold gold! I can cap it and put it on a cord but I think it may appeal to a jeweler to be set in some other way. It is signed.
