BEADS - We have our second offering of beads.  The first bead is Ruby with two Milk Glass hearts.  These hearts are created using the same technique as the Hanging Heart pieces, by placing a dot of Milk Glass on the Ruby bead and pulling it into the heart shape.  Next is a Vasa Murrhina style bead.  The bead is Milk Glass with green and red frit, plus copper mica.  Both will have an NFGS decal.  A perfect combination of colors for the holidays, and will complement your favorite outfits all year-round.  They are available for $35 each, which includes shipping.       nd11Bead_red-hanging-heart.JPG  nd11green_red-bead.JPG
