Lampwork glass chandelier necklace

Lampwork glass chandelier necklace

This handmade chandelier necklace is one of a kind!  It was born out of an abundance of lampwork glass beads and a spark of creativity :)

Four 10 x 5 mm cobalt blue borosilicate glass beads form a dramatic pendant with accents of Swarovski crystal and sterling silver.  The 4 mm crystals glimmer in a light sapphire satin color that beautifully complements the boro beads.

The pendant measures approximately 43 mm (1 5/8″) from the top of the sterling silver circle to the bottom of the longest sterling silver headpin.  It hangs from a 1.4 mm sterling silver double rope chain with a sterling silver spring ring clasp.

The lampwork beads are also handmade, though not by me :)

I loved designing this pendant because the lampwork beads are just beautiful.  They have great depth and amazing color.  Anyone who likes blue will undoubtedly be drawn to them.  Visit my Etsy shop to learn more about this necklace today!

Just a quick photo of my latest creation.  I snapped this image with my phone, so please excuse the shadowy lighting.  The handmade lampwork beads are a lovely deep sapphire color, and the components are all sterling silver.  It will be posted for sale in my Etsy shop very soon.

Several years ago, I met a ski instructor whose sister made lampwork glass beads in her home studio and sold them to local boutiques in upstate New York.  When she was ready to move on to other creative endeavors, she offered up her remaining beads to me for use in my own jewelry projects.  This is the jewelry set that I made for her to thank her for her generosity.
