This is a beautiful and unique lampworked bead with a face emerging from swirled glass. It was purchased on Vancouver Island; I do not know the artist's name. Really amazing workmanship. The centre bead is set between silver and glass beads and a silver post runs throughout. Can be suspended from a silver or fabric cord. Measures 4 inches to top of bail, 1-2/8th of an inch at widest point and about an inch high at mid-point of face.
