I made these beads for Frank - one is for a keychain for his new bike, the other is a good luck charm to tie onto his bags.
Both were made the same way: base of transparent cobalt blue, threaded on clear stringer, silver foil, more threaded clear stringer and then all melted in. I think the small one has some opaque cobalt threaded on too.
They match his new bike. It's a 2001 Yamaha VStar 1100.
