A galaxy in your pocket...

I'm still making spacey beads...and I love this one. Deep blue, with lots of silver foil and silvered glass frit, encased in pale aqua. The result looks just like a galaxy captured in a bead. It's a big bead and it's what I call a freeform round - meaning that it's not completely spherical. Because if you did manage to get hold of a galaxy and encase it in glass, it wouldn't be perfectly shaped, would it?

If you'd like your own personal piece of the universe, it's on Etsy now :o)
