Handmade glass acorn necklace topped with a pure silver cup
Limited Edition Acorn Collection
A little handmade lampwork glass acorn capped with a handmade, textured pure silver acorn cup. Straight from a woodland fairytale, this beautiful acorn features an opaque pale cream base, moving up through iridescent shades of blue and lilac, up to caramel hues at the cup. The cup is lightly oxidised to highlight the texture and pattern.
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.
