Mermaid Tears Necklace

It's been over 5 years since I've made some of these cute little beads and I'm not sure why I waited so long to make them again. They are created off mandrel and are about the size of the end of my pinky, think tiny. I went a little crazy and ended up with over 125 there are 114 on the necklace. 
Here's the whole necklace it's really hard to photograph, it's priced at $150. 
Here it is on, don't mind my freckled neck. 

Here is a close up of a few so you can see the loops, they are all created using frit, clear glass and a pair of tweezers that I made for this purpose.

A few days after the first necklace was made I ended up back at the torch and made another 105 beads and made these little necklaces. I had a naming contest on Facebook and my friend Deb came up with the name Mermaid Tears. 
$20.00 + shipping. 


  1. So cool! I would love more info on how to make these!

  2. What is the COE of the glass you use?

    1. This is 96 but everything else is 104.
