A kitty focal bead, inspired by a recent kitty swap on the Frit-Happens forum.
Melvin is made from opaque Effetre red copper green glass, and has a teeny flower as an accessory!
He is approx 3cm tall and 1.5 cm wide (1 1/4" x 1/2"). He was made on a 2mm mandrel.
All beads are handmade by me in my studio in Dundee, Scotland, using soft glass - Effetre, CiM, Vetrofond and Reichenbach. All beads are annealed in a digitally-controlled kiln.
