When Double Helix silver reduction glass is encased after reducing it changes to a beautiful shimmer... just like magic!  An organic UFO shaped bead that looks almost clear when you look at it from the top or bottom!

Double Helix elektra glass has been reduced and then encased, paired with a 4mm crystal bicone bead.  

All hooks, beads and findings are sterling silver.

Length from top of hook: approximately 5cm


Karen Southey is a glass bead and jewellery maker based in Te Kopuru, Northland. She has been creating jewellery for over a decade and loves every step of the process from the making of glass beads to j=bespoke jewellery pieces.

Having experimented with various styles and techniques in her jewellery making journey, in 2014 Karen took a weekend course at 'Born to Bead' and fell in love with the process. She has been making her own beads ever since then.

Each bead is carefully crafted in a very hot flame and then immediately put in a kiln to cool gradually for several hours to cure. Karen mainly use Italian glass (Effetre) and some American (Double Helix) and also enjoys transforming broken antique bottle glass, found in Kaipara, into beautiful beads and sustainable jewellery for everyday use.
