Handmade glass acorn necklace topped with a pure silver cup
Limited Edition Acorn Collection
A little handmade lampwork glass acorn in clear glass, spun through with lots of different shades of greens, browns and a hint of blue. The glass changes colour as light passes through it, sometimes looking a dark amber shade, other times gold or green. When the sun hits the surface it reveals areas with a metallic sheen. Capped with a handmade, textured pure silver acorn cup, the silver is oxidised to a beautiful aged, vintage finish.
Available on a choice of sterling silver chains, finished with a bolt clasp*.
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.
