The Italian Moretti Glass Lampwork Beads are Individually Handcrafted by one of my favorite U.S. Glass Lampwork Artisans (in the state of Oregon) & are Properly Kiln Annealed.
Dimensional Violet Florals seemingly float and dance around a plum purple base, with dimensional scroll work in green …
The stacked beads (on a stainless steel, silver plated bead pin), each measure approx 7/8 Inches in width (just shy of 1 Inch) x 1/2 - 5/8 Inch in height ... and grouped together the Focal measures 1 3/4 Inches, and including the bead pin, the entire focal measures 2 1/4 Inches.
Strung on a Swedish Satin Cord (measuring 26 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 bead pins are are only reflections from my camera - and do not actually appear on the components)
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 !
