puffin bird bead

This bird bead was made using a tutorial by Jennifer Geldard. I used soft glass from various manufacturers including Devardi ( a Indian glass), Moretti, CBS dichroic, and Lauscha. Two techniques I appreciated most about this tutorial are the making and application of eye cane and shaping the bird beak.

This bead is in the process of being made into a pendant and gifted to a dear friend who adores birds and loves all things dichroic.
