Uniquely Distinctive, One-Of-A-Kind, Vibrant Orange Boro Glass Lampwork Heart Focal, Swarovski Crystal, Vermeil, Wearable Art Necklace.
This STUNNINGLY VIBRANT Necklace showcases an Orange Boro Glass Heart Focal (the Heart is U.S. Artisan Handcrafted and properly kiln annealed). Substantial in size, the Heart Focal measures 1 1/4 Inch in Width x 1 3/4 Inches Tall x 5/8 Inches in Depth. The Orange Heart additionally has subtle swirling wisps of yellow (that did not fully photograph) which accordingly picks up the Yellows in the Flashing - Fire Opal Swarovski Crystal Beads ...
The Necklace portion is comprised of Dazzling 8 mm Facet Cut Orange Fire Opal Swarovski Crystal, nestled between Vermeil Bead Caps, and separated with 4 mm Orange Fire Opal Swarovski Crystal.
(Fire Opal Swarovski Crystal is named due to its subtle and vibrant flashes of Red & Yellow .. a similar characteristic to the way in which a natural opal flashes different colors).
(Vermeil - pronounced ver-may - is a combination of precious metals. Vermeil is carat gold over sterling silver, and I use high quality 22K gold vermeil in my creations).
This Necklace is fluidly finished with a Vermeil Toggle Clasp and measures 19 Inches in Length + the Heart Focal (an additional 1 1/2 Inches in Length)
If you are new to Glass Lampwork Art, each bead is individually hand crafted by heating solid glass rods to a molten state - depending on the skill of the Glass Lampwork Artisan, the end result can be phenomenal. Lampworking involves carefully manipulating hot molten glass ... and no paint or painting is involved.
(small white pinpoint spots / streaks on the beads are only photographed reflection spots, and do not actually appear on any the beads).
