Pendant style butterfly necklace in fine and sterling silver
A beautiful pendant style necklace handmade from pure recycled silver, featuring a partial impression of a butterfly. I lightly oxidised the pendant to bring out the butterfly detail. Individually created, each butterfly is unique and will differ ever so slightly from the necklace in the photograph. Hung on your choice of sterling silver chain, with a sterling silver bolt clasp.
Pendant size approximately 28 mm by 14 mm.
Contemporary lampwork glass jewellery by glass artist and designer Carolyn Grant.
Handmade in my home studio in Cheshire, England, I create sterling silver earrings, necklaces and bracelets using my own handcrafted lampwork glass beads. Formed in a hot flame using a propane and oxygen powered torch, each lampwork bead is individually handmade and unique. My lampwork glass forms the focal part of my jewellery designs, each one a tiny little work of art. There is something hypnotic about working with hot glass, manipulating it in the flame and using a combination of heat and gravity to control the flow and create something beautiful. I learn something new every time I fire up my torch, and hope that my fascination with glass translates into my jewellery.
