The Focal is Substantial in size, measuring 3/4 Inch in Width x 1 3/4 Inches in Length. Hand wire wrapped on heavy gauge hardened Sterling Silver with accenting hematite (at the top & bottom of the focal bead).
Please note, the focal bead is not flat .. it is a dimensional circular Barrel Shape (less a bulging center :-) ...
This Uniquely Distinctive, One-Of-A-Kind Necklace is Fashionably Lengthy at 26 Inches (+ 2 Add'l Inches for the Floral Focal) … No clasp needed due to the length of the sterling silver chain - simply slip over your head and your off to go !
If you are new to Glass Lampwork Art, each bead is Individually hand crafted by heating solid glass rods to a molten state - the beads are created by wrapping and layering the molten glass around a steel rod (which becomes the bead hole). 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 !
