This beautiful necklace has a swirled, round lampwork bead with colors including yellow, blue, purple and peach. It isn't perfectly round, and measures 1 x 7/8 inches, not including the glass bail on top. There is one small air bubble at the bottom of one of the peach-colored swirls, quite tiny and unseen unless really looking closely a the bead. The light reflection makes it look almost "crackled" but it is not -- all the "bands" are smooth. (This bead was not made by me.) I have added the chain, which is a copper plated "cross" shaped chain (and which says Korea on the clasp). It is 16 inches long, and quite beautiful in its own right. The necklace will be shipped in a gift box.
