Default 2 of my favorite skeleton keys have cracked

I have been wearing the one on the left for a couple of weeks, but looked down yesterday, and half of the bead was gone! So I checked my other recent keys, and the one on the left with Brad's striking glass has cracks running down each side of the glass. I am so sad, as that was some of my best color with Brad's glass. The one on the right seems fine, so far. Also glad i hadn't tried to sell them yet!

I've never had any problems with my traditional round beads cracking, but on these, i had let the glass flow around abstractly. They went straight to kiln. Was it not enough insurance heat? Maybe too thin in places? So frustrating, as I really liked the look.
