Uniquely Distinctive, One-Of-A-Kind - 2 Sided, 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 Arizona) and is Properly Kiln Annealed.
The focal has a wonderful, organic and mesmerizing quality ... with a creamy ivory base, encased in green glass (creating a soft, yet vivid glowing effect). Adorning the bead, are underlying abstracts in creamy silvered ivory (note - the minerals in the glass, react together, creating a natural organic brownish mottled appearance), splashes of cane Millefiori, and slightly raised dimensional lines and dots in black ...
(note - this is a 2 sided focal bead - both sides of the bead are adorned - please see all pics)
The Focal Bead - on its own - measures 1 3/8 Inches in width (just shy of 1 1/2 Inches) x 1 3/4 Inches in height x 3/8 Inch in thickness ...
The Focal - hand wire wrapped on heavy gauge vermeil, with accenting facet cut Swarovski Crystal in Peridot Green Aurora Borealis (AB) .... measures a total overall length of 2 3/8 Inches (just shy of 2 1/2 Inches).
Strung on a Swedish Satin Cord (measuring 28 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 !
