Marble beads

Welcome to my marble bead collection.

Marbles are certainly not new in the world of glass, but I have tried to give it my own identity and by that have developed some unique ideas to capture with in the sphere.
Isn't it amazing how much depth one can create within such a beautiful round lens!
It fascinates me to try lots of different techniques and to explore designs which I can incorporate into the classic marble shape. To make the marble wearable  I added a specialised screw into the marble so that I could finish it off with a beautiful handmade sterling silver bail made by my talented daughter Inge Riedel.
The marbles beads are extremely sturdy!
