The Big One

A huge capped and cored 'full moon' bead.

I'm really excited about the bead caps on this one.
Such a lot of work to fabricate them.
I think I had every metal cutting, shaping, banging and filing tool I own out of the cupboard.

The bead is hollow (duh).
Ivory and dark ivory for the base glass. Decorated with fine silver foil and trails of Double Helix 'Psyche.'

I need a bigger dapping block to make these bigger bead caps.
Always in need of a new tool, am I right? Why does every idea lead back to my wallet?

It's the big one! This bead is about the size of a golf ball.
