NOTE: The Swarovski Crystal in the Necklace portion (appear more greenish/blue in the pics ... but the beads are much closer in actual color to the blue focal :-)
(small white pinpoint spots on the beads are only photograph reflection spots and do not actually appear on the beads - nor do any of the darkened / black spots on any of the sterling silver - these are only reflections from my camera)
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 !
