This lampwork glass necklace was handmade in my studio from Effetre 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 medium topaz. The lengths of the beads are graduated from a long piece at the center, flanked by two medium length pieces, and then 2 smaller pieces at the sides. All 5 pieces are well-fused and I will include spacers of my choice 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 66mm and 59 mm high x 10mm wide x 9.5 mm thick at the bail(2 1/2" to 2 1/4" high x 3/8" x 3/8"). 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 sterling silver wire or a steel cable choker with magnetic clasp, and I will change the price and reserve the listing for you. Please note that these sets are made to order. The item pictured is not the one you will receive. Please allow for slight variations due to the handmade nature of each item. Please see my shop policies for current turnaround time on custom orders. YOUR ITEM WILL BE CUSTOM MADE FOR EACH ORDER. 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.
