A colourful and decorative necklace made with seven individually handmade glass beads and a handmade sterling silver chain. Various shades of dark red glass were used for the bases of these beads. The richly detailed surface decoration was applied layer by layer in a multitude of colours to emulate the marvelous Indian embroideries on which they are based. All the beads on this necklace are different, adding to the richness of the piece.
The beads have been etched to create a matte and worn finish such as would be found on ancient beads. The silver work has been hammered and patinated to complement this look.
These beads are from 18mm to 20mm round and the total length of the necklace is 54cm.
The necklace can be worn shorter by inserting the hook clasp into one of the soldered links further along the chain.
Weight is 54.7gm
POSTAGE AND PACKING
To reduce waste the necklace will be packaged in a drawstring linen bag which can then be re-used.
Postage includes insurance.
Delivery times are estimates. Please contact me if you have any particular delivery requirements.
Although annealing in a kiln has increased the resilience of these beads they could break if dropped on a hard surface too many times!
Gentle wash in warm water. Clean silver work with a soft cloth - to maintain the patination avoid silver cleaning cloths.
My love of textiles and the wonderful Indian embroideries of Jaipur and Kutch with their marvelous patterning, rich detailing and exuberant use of colour lie behind the making of these beads. Unfortunately I have never visited, maybe one day ………..
