Uniquely Distinctive, One-Of-A-Kind - Purple Constellation, 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, mesmerizing organic quality ... with an underlying lavender purple base (core), encased in pale translucent purple (creating a soft glowing effect), with a combination of some layered silvered ivory and translucent brown melted down (creating a nebulous galaxy effect). Additionally adorned with raised dimensional dots (in double helix boutique - iridescent glass - which will shift color - from silver to coppery) and 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 1/8 Inches in width 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 Amethyst), is further complemented with my own bench crafted bail (of twisted sterling silver and copper) and measures a total overall length 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 ... nor do any of the dark spots on the highly reflective iridescent glass)
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 !
