A smaller version of my popular Petal Collection Heart Necklaces, these lovely little pendants feature coloured glass petals arching up through a clear glass heart. Handmade by stretching a series of teeny glass dots up through the heart, the glass is framed with sterling silver.
Available on a choice of chain lengths. Popular for bridesmaids gifts and birthday presents. As each glass heart is individually handmade, the position of the petals will vary.
Glass heart 15 mm (5/8ths of an inch) wide Pendant length from chain 24 mm (just under 1 inch)
The Petal Collection:
Reminiscent of flowers captured forever in bloom, this collection of handmade jewellery features delicate layers of petals built up one by one and contained in a sphere of clear glass. Individually handmade, each one is unique. I make these beads by layering little dots of coloured glass on the bead and then manipulating them in the flame under clear glass to stretch the dots into petal shapes. Each bead is a little work of art.
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.
