Uniquely Distinctive, One-Of-A-Kind - Forever Blooming Floral, 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. The Lampwork Artisan is no longer creating her fantastic treasures - and these are the last remaining inventory I have of her amazing art work !
A Dimensional Raised Floral (in translucent Blue over solid blue) with dimensional foliage in greens seemingly float on a black base with mesmerizing swirling raku …
The Teardrop shaped Focal Bead - on its own - measures 1 1/4 Inches in width (at it's widest point) x 1 1/2 Inches in height x 1/2 Inch in thickness ...
The Focal - hand wire wrapped on heavy gauge vermeil, with accenting facet cut Swarovski Crystal in Golden Shadow - measures a total overall length of 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 !
