This bead was hand sculpted by me!
This brown bear measures about 1 1/2" wide from ear to ear, and about 1 1/4" high from ear to chin.
These character beads are made from Effetre glass from Murano, Italy, and are individually hand sculpted in the 4500˚ F/ 2480˚ C flame of a torch. Each bead is carefully annealed (a controlled cooling to alleviate internal stress in glass) and because of their design and shape, they are surprisingly strong. Even if the designs look similar, you will get the individual bead that you select.
