Here is a bead that I just finished up, and I'm really happy how it turned out. There is a lot of work in this one! I heavily sand blasted the star pattern, leaving the stars raised and shiney. A few of the stars are slightly etched, but only enough to get them a soft matte appearance. It was then electroformed. The stars are tiny windows into the depth of the bead. This bead offers a lot of interest, in depth and texture. I plan to make more in this style.
Thanks for looking!
