This one of a kind handmade glass necklace features an etched glass heart on a sterling silver chain. If you look inside the heart you can see purple and white patterns that look like pressed petals frozen in ice. A beautiful, subtle piece, designed to be worn long, but available on a choice of chain lengths for the perfect fit.

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.
