Black and White Hand Blown Glass (lampwork) with Goldstone, Wire-Wrapped Necklace Pendant
To make this, I first created a ribbon cane using black and white Italian soft glass and then laced it with goldstone to give it a sparkle. I melted the ribbon cane over a black base. When I was done, the glass was annealed for 14 hours in a kiln.
After annealing, I wire-wrapped the glass with copper, adding crystal charms and a chain with a small skeleton key on the end. Then made the cord and soldered it in loops and a lobster claw clasp. The cord is about 18" long, and the pendant is 3.45" from the end of the charm to the top of the loop. It is about 1.45" wide and 0.47" thick.
Thank you for supporting my art and our small business,
More about us:
We are full-time artists with extensive backgrounds in the high-tech industry, which helps us with the technical aspects of our artwork and glass blowing. We love to incorporate science into our functional art pieces.
Our small organic farm overlooks the Bitterroot Mountains with several buildings dedicated to our work-from-home lifestyle. The Steampunk Shop is Rae’s creative space; the Torch Shop is where we blow our glass; the Big Shop is for general mad science and Bill's electronics lab.
Since 1993, our work has produced glass art, including hand-blown contemporary marbles, hummingbird feeders, and Pixie Orb ornaments.
We are spreading love and harmony - one piece of art at a time.
