Portrait of a Basha Bead

An Oregon lamp work artist creates Basha Beads of dichroic glass. I just photographed A SINGLE BASHA BEAD Pendant for my Etsy shop https://www.etsy.com/shop/SusanDolphinDelaney?ref=ss_profile. (There are usually a dozen or so items with wonderful Basha Beads in my shop at any one time. I’ll list the ones currently available at the bottom of this post.)

I turned the bead a little for each photo. You can see swirls of iridescent pink, blue-violet, aqua, gold, blue and violet, all in the same bead.

Wouldn’t this pendant be a great companion if you were stuck on a long conference call or in a long meeting? You could turn it every which way and begin to discover all of its mysteries.

The bead cap is sterling silver as is the 18″ wheat chain.

I design elegant, classic, minimalist jewelry for the working woman. You can put my jewelry on in the morning and forget about it. My jewelry will never distract. However, most of my jewelry contains fascinating components like this Basha Bead, to keep you company in trying times.
