(2005) Beads are between 0.2" and 1.5" in diameter. Moretti glass (bone white and clear), silver foil and dead soft 20 gauge silver wire, Hothead torch, Bali silver beads and spacers, fireline, sliver findings.
I made the glass beads for this strung necklace myself.
The coloration on the beads is obtained by burning silver foil into the heated glass in the torch flame. The silver oxydizes and creates beautiful iridescent colors.
The title "Cauda Pavonis" is Latin for "Tail of the Peacock" and in Alchemy is used to name an iridescent color effect sought after by adepts in the long process of obtaining gold from lead.
