Big Hearted

It's a day about love - Mother's Day.

A large, 2 inch long, focal bead.
The speckled bead has a base of Cim's transparent blue Sapphire, which is the most beautiful blue ever.

After sculpting the heart I covered it in silver foil and then dotted the foil with Double Helix Gaia.. Finally, the dots were melted in and the whole bead was heavily reduced and loaded into the kiln.

Gorgeous! My gaia usually unreduces in the kiln.
