Uniquely Distinctive, One-Of-A-Kind - Forever Blooming Florals, Artisan Lampwork Focal Pendant Necklace and Earrings - Wearable Art !
The Italian Moretti Glass Lampwork Beads are Handcrafted by a U.S. Glass Lampwork Artisan (in the state of Illinois) and are Properly Kiln Annealed.
This is the last "Matching Set" available - as the lampwork artisan (is no longer creating her gorgeous treasures) (& as such, also reflected in the price) ...
The Lampwork Focal ... Dimensional Raised Florals (in translucent Indigo Purple over Periwinkle, and Aquamarine Blue over white) which seemingly float on their solid chocolate brown base, with dimensional foliage in greens …
The Focal Bead - on its own - measures 1 5/8 Inches in height x 1 1/2 Inches in width x 1/2 Inch in thickness ... and has been hand wire wrapped on heavy gauge vermeil, with accenting facet cut Swarovski Crystal (in Purple Tanzanite and Blue Robin Egg) - measuring a total overall length of 2 1/4 Inches. The Focal is 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 :-)
The Matching Lampwork Earrings ... Dimensional Raised Florals (combined translucent Purple, over Periwinkle) on a solid solid chocolate brown base, with dimensional foliage in greens .. measure 1/2 Inch in height x 3/4 Inches in width - are hand wire wrapped on gold vermeil, and accented with Facet Cut Swarovski Crystal (in purple tanzanite) ... and dangle gracefully from my own bench crafted vermeil earring wire, measure a total overall length of 1 3/4 Inches in length ...
(any darkened / black spots on the vermeil are are only reflections from my camera - and do not actually appear on any of 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 !
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.
