This lampwork glass necklace was handmade in my studio from Vetrofond Italian glass. It is a continuation of the exploration of pressing glass that began in my Droplet series and which I am calling my Droplet Stick series. Each long bead is comprised of a glass donut bail, a long cylinder of glass and a pressed glass circle made of transparent light and medium amethyst. The lengths of the beads are graduated from a long piece at the center, flanked my two medium length pieces at the sides, with the two side beads as light amethyst, and the center long bead as a medium tone. All 3 pieces are well-fused and the spacers shown will be included with the glass beads. I am truly inspired by the possibilities in the manipulation and organization of these glass discs, and will continue this exploration to see where it leads me. The beads measure between approximately 69mm and 57 mm high x 10mm wide x 9.5 mm thick at the bail(2 3/4" to 2 1/4" high x 3/8" x 3/8"). This set is modern yet feminine, and would look just as lovely with a tank top as with a gown. Dressed up or dressed down, this set is a stunner!I am including an 18" 1.5mm sterling silver omega wire necklace to complete this look! Please contact me if you'd like to change it to a 16" 1mm wire or a black rubber necklace with silver clasp, and I will change the price and reserve the listing for you.All of my glasswork has been kiln annealed for longevity and cleaned with a diamond reamer. The beads were created on a 3/32" mandrel.I am a member of the ISGB, Southern California Flame Surfers, the Orange County Bead Society, am SRA #H104 and SRAJD#1422 and am featured on TrunkT.
