Another sculptural bead. I made it using scraps of cathedral stained glass, hence the restricted palette of colours. The blue thing on it's back is a loop for hanging, added as an afterthought. I was trying a duck but its head fell off, have to reheat and rework it and see how it goes.

This looks awesome! Is this

This looks awesome! Is this from a pattern that you've seen or is it all from your head?

Recycling glass

I looked at Google images of seahorses and made a rough sketch of the bits I wanted to include. I kept the sketch by me as I was beading off mandrel. The best thing is that I'm using up bits of scrap, cheap cathedral glass left over from making stained glass windows, so getting in practice whilst not wasting "good" i.e. expensive glass.
