A beautiful silver framed handmade glass bead on a slim silver stem
This beautiful one of a kind lampwork drop looks more like a polished precious stone than glass, with different shades of blues, greys and mossy browns fanning out through the glass. A blend of clear and opaque colours gives the patterns extra depth and adds to the mineral effect. Framed in sterling silver and hung from a slender stem, the necklace is available on a choice of sterling silver chain, finished with a bolt clasp.
Drop length from chain 38 mm Glass bead measures 12 mm wide
Please take the drop length into consideration when choosing your chain.
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.
