Glass Lampwork Mushroom Beads - Dreadlock by andromeda Glass Lampwork Mushroom Beads - Dreadlock by andromeda
Just made these glass lampwork mushroom beads yesterday for a custom order. They have extra huge holes, because my customer is using them to wear in her dreadlocks. I was so happy with how they turned out, the customer picked the colors as well, I hope she will be happy!

How much would it cost to buy like 20 of these in different colors, and with the hole being horizontal instead of vertical ?

Hi CarolPullTheTrigger, Thanks for the inquiry. I will have to get back with you on that. I have never attempted one with a horizontal hole, so not sure if it is going to work. I may not get on the torch for another two or three weeks (taking care of my Mom right now, she is not doing well), but the next time I am on, I will try one out and get back with you about pricing, depending on the difficulty of the bead. Just to give you an idea, these ones were $20 due to their size.

They looks super cool, and the idea of wearing glass beads in dreadlocks never occurred to me before (I spend very little time thinking about dreadlocks) and is awesome.
also, I mean, mushrooms. mushrooms are pretty much always the best thing.

:) Thanks Takimashou, I don't have dreadlocks myself, but there sure is a market out there for wearable beads for those that do have dreads. I think it is pretty cool, (having thought about doing dread locks in my own hair, but I always chicken out), But I have worn dready beads in my hair by putting them on little braids. I really appreciate your post!

These are so great! I'm always a fan of anything blue and orange, and the colors are perfect on these mushrooms! I like how there's a little bit of red in the orange and the blue is translucent. Great job!

Thank you so much Raseleanne! Glad you like them. I always love contrasting colors as well, teal and orange being my favorite! But I can't take too much credit for this one, it was all done at my customers request :) But I sure appreciate your kind words!

Vertigo-Gal, that is just one of the wonderful things about the transparent glass, just brings so much light to each bead! :) I went back and looked at the picture, and sure enough they look squishy! Like gummy mushrooms! hehe!
