Uniquely Distinctive, One-Of-A-Kind - Forever Blooming Florals, Artisan Lampwork Focal Pendant Necklace - Wearable Art !
The Italian Moretti Glass Lampwork Focal Bead is Handcrafted by a U.S. Glass Lampwork Artisan (in the state of Illinois) and is Properly Kiln Annealed.
Dimensional Raised Florals (in translucent Purple and Rubio Pink over white) seemingly float on their red base (the actual core of the bead is a solid color, which has been heavily encased in Red translucent glass) with additional accenting dimensional stringer florals and leaves in blues and beige … and several pressed pale purple buds ... the back of the bead, solid and unadorned (see pic) ...
The Focal Bead - on its own - measures 1 1/2 Inches - at it's widest point) x 1 3/4 Inches in height x 1/2 Inch in thickness ... and the bead has an intentional, non conforming offset shape (and is beautifully and perfectly balanced) !
The Focal - hand wire wrapped on heavy gauge vermeil, with accenting facet cut Swarovski Crystal in light Siam Red - measures a total overall length of 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 vermeil are are only reflections from my camera - and do not actually appear on the vermeil)
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 !
