My first big hole bead

Well, my first big hole bead that didn't have a cracked end. It's long gone because I made it explicitly as a birthday present for a friend, almost 3 months ago.

My dots quite obviously need more practice. The big hole bead has dark ivory 'dots' on dark aqua, the spacers on the side are ink blue (and they are more even in size than it looks in the picture). All the glass used is Moretti/Effetre, and all my beads are annealed in my digitally controlled Glasshive kiln.

As I made this as a birthday present for a friend who doesn't make jewelry I just strung it on a ready made chain necklace.
