A unique, colourful and eye-catching necklace made with six of my handmade glass beads and sterling silver. The beads are strung on a sterling silver bar that hangs from one of my handmade sterling silver chains. A lovely piece that will add a pop of colour to any outfit.
I make each bead individually in a torch flame and add more layers of hot glass in dots and lines in many other colours until I have achieved a richly detailed and patterned bead I am happy with. These ‘Lollipop’ beads are designed to be lively and joyful.
I make all my chains myself and this one is composed of hammered sterling silver rods linked together with soldered silver rings. I have ‘oxidised’ it to give it an aged look.
The beads in this piece for a soft matte finish, which makes them resemble ceramic.
The total length of this piece is 46.5cm and the beads measure 19mm x 17mm.
NOTE ON PACKAGING I have made the decision not to use branded packaging so as to avoid adding to our recycling and landfill problems. Each piece will be sent in a drawstring cotton bag that can be reused.
Once made the beads are heated in a kiln for many hours to help the glass settle, this increases their resilience. However they are not unbreakable and although they will withstand some dropping on concrete and stone surfaces may protest if done too much!
Clean with a soft cloth.
I have a recollection of a science fiction illustration from many years ago that depicted a landscape upon which large lollipop structures stood. This was the basis for the design of these beads. The rest grew from there with the addition of layered dots in a profusion of colours to enrich the design. I love colour and so playing around with it with such abandon on these beads was just wonderful!
The beads looked really nice lying side by side so I put them into a ‘bar’ necklace where they sit next to each other well.
