Green Sea Necklace
Inspired by seaweed, shells and starfish, this is a lamp-worked and sculpted glass bead necklace. Very unusual. Every piece was made in the flame using soft Italian soda glass with the lamp-work technique. Lustre and silver glass was added to to some beads for a iridescent surface. All the beads were annealed for strength and some were stone tumbled to give a soft matt finish. Definitely a piece that will create interest!
Easy to wear with a button and loop fastener
Approximately 50 cm in length (can be altered by arrangement)
Comes in a purpose made cotton drawstring bag, with information about the craft used and how to care for your piece
The price includes 1st class packaging and postage

An easy to wear, unique glass bead bracelet on strong stretchy cord. Made from a selection of my ‘fossil’ beads. I make these individually in the flame with Italian ‘soft’ glass, so every bead is different. Opaque ivory and bone coloured glass is melted in a flame and wound around a metal mandrel which creates the hole. Rock striations & ‘fossils’ are added with glass stringers and murrini. The beads are annealed in the kiln for strength and then stone tumbled to give a soft matt finish.
Fits approx 18cm wrist, but can be extended or shorted by arrangement
Arrives in its own box with information about the technique used and advice for future care.
