Uniquely Distinctive, One-Of-A-Kind - Etched Viridescent, 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 a creamy ivory base, wrapped and adorned with Viridian Green and Copper, with slightly raised dotting in white and black ... In conjunction, the Focal has been etched, creating a soft matte finish and a sumptuous silk like feel and texture ..
(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 1/4 Inches in width x 1 1/2 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 Green and Clear aurora borealis (AB), 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)
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 !
