Frosted Sea Pendant Necklace
These beautiful Frosted Sea Pendant Necklaces really conjure up the coast on a cold winter’s morning as seagulls suddenly appear in the hanging mist and gently skim the surface of the water.
Combining a mixture of glossy clear or etched opaque glass with a generous wave of melted fine silver droplets they are sure to become a firm favourite on all occasions.
Individually handmade by Julie Fountain from Italian glass in the unusual and highly skilled art form known as lampworking.
During the process, glass rods are heated by a fiercely hot flame and manipulated by blowing and shaping while the glass is still fluid.
Afterwards each piece is annealed to remove the stress from the glass and to increase its strength. The process involves cooling the glass very slowly in a digitally controlled kiln.
Working from her studio in beautiful Malvern, England, Julie turns simple rods of glass into beautiful, hard wearing pieces of wearable art.
She’s as fascinated today as she was when she made her first bead. What originally started out as simple swirls of colour have evolved overtime into a distinctive style that has delighted customers the world over.
She has been teaching glass bead making since 2007.
Due to the very individual nature of these rather lovely pendants there may be slight differences in their composition from the images shown.
