Sky Flower Focal

I've been working on my chocolate theme for about a week now and continue to add pieces done in the same color combination but in different styles. This bead is approximately 2" X 1 1/2". Working on a piece that large on a Nortel Minor torch is no easy feat. You have to continually rotate and "flash" the entire piece (keep it warm) while you add the surface decoration, and as you can see there is decoration on both sides of this bead. It takes a little better than an hour of time to complete something in this size. I think this one will be staying in my collection for awhile so I can continue to satiate my appetite for chocolate. Stay tuned for more pieces...
