Fancy Silver Fume - Black glass w/ Gold & Silver - CUSTOM choose your bead hole size - Hand Blown Glass Dread Bead, Rainbow colors


Fancy Silver Fume beads start out as a solid color tube that gets that gets fumed with a layer of 99.9% pure silver this bead also gets fumed with 24 kt gold. This gives the beads a iridescent coating in an array of colors. I then use a clear glass rod to create a spiral and marble freeform motif on the surface. The clear brings out the highlights on the silver and gives it a bit of texture. Nice even thickness all the way thru.

The Black Fancy Silver Fume beads comes in 5 sizes most people choose the small of medium size. Medium size bead hole is the most versatile and should fit somewhere on almost any head of dreads. Please check the Dread beads Comparison chart to get an idea if this is the right size for you.

Size Note; with New dreadlocks or soft dread locks you may want to go a size smaller as your dread locks will squish together tighter when putting on a dread bead. More mature or harder dread locks will be true to your measured size.

Dreadlock size comparison for dreadlock beads;
Small, 1/4” or 8mm and under, about the diameter no.2 pencil or thinner
Medium 3/8” or 10mm, about the diameter of a AAA battery
Large, 1/2” or 12mm, about the diameter of a AA battery
Extra Large, 5/8” or 15mm, about the diameter a large Crayola Marker

Another great bead from Alyssa. I love her work and her customer support is amazing. Everything I have got from her shop arrives in good time and is packed with care. Will definitely keep doing business with her. Thanks for all the amazing pieces.

This sturdy little bead just glistens in the sun. I purchased this gift for myself from the Christmas money my Grandmother gave me and she’s going to love them as much as I do. Repeat customer here!

I have, let me see, 6 of her beads now. Love them! This one in blue is so pretty. They are lightweight, durable, and don't take on color from dyes like plastic beads do. I just ordered another from this shop and am excited to see it!
