Uniquely Distinctive, One-Of-A-Kind - Forever Blooming Florals, Artisan Lampwork Focal Pendant Necklace - Exquisite Wearable Art !
The Italian Moretti Glass Lampwork Focal Bead is Handcrafted by a U.S. Glass Lampwork Artisan (in the state of Washington) and is Properly Kiln Annealed.
This Focal bead - comes from my personal collection ! Acquired many years ago (with the Artisan, since having retired). THIS focal far exceeds in beauty - what I was able to capture in photos ... it is truly exquisite ... and gorgeous !!!
The Internal Core of the Bead is a Blue Green Teal Raku - encased in clear glass - with Topaz and White plunged bubble florals - further encased in clear glass .. creating a wonderful barrel shaped bead (i.e. not flat and ... having a fully rounded circumference)
The Floral Blossoms Focal Bead alone - measures 1 1/4 Inches in length x 7/8 Inches in width (just shy of 1 Inch) ...
Set on a stainless steel, gold plated bead pin with accenting gold plated Rhodium, dazzling Swarovski Crystal stations - and gold vermeil saucer beads) the entire focal measures 2 1/2 Inches.
Strung on a Swedish Satin Cord (measuring 30 Inches in length, allowing you to simply slip over your head and go). This Focal can (also) easily be added to your favorite chain … and/or you can continue to wear on it's satin cord … your preference :-)
(any darkened / black spots on the bead pins are are only reflections from my camera - and do not actually appear on the components)
We live in such a mass produced world that it is easy to forget that gifted glass artisan's are sitting in their studio's, creating beads at their torch, one at at time (and that their talent comes from years of practice as they refine their techniques). None of the lampwork beads that I use in my designs and creations are from a bead store and/or a craft store ... I purchase my lampwork beads directly from skilled glass lampwork artisans, that live in the U.S.
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 !
