Blown Glass (Lampwork) Necklace and Earring set, Day at the Beach
To make the pendant, I created different colored fish murrines and incorporated them into a bicone shape with a blue and black ribbon cane I made. This gave the pendant fun, whimsical beach colors. I made lampwork beads for the necklace and earrings using the same base ribbon cane. The Italian soft glass was annealed for 14 hours.
After annealing, I soldered a seahorse on one side of the top of the pendant and a fish on the other side, then strung the pendant, two lampwork beads on gold soft flex beading wire, and crystals and gemstones. This has a sterling silver clasp and measures about 19" long; the pendant is 2.65" long and about 0.80" wide.
The earrings are on gold plated, locking hook clasps with crystals. These are about 1.12" long from the bottom of the earring clasp to the bottom of the earring and about 0.50 in diameter.
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.
