Round Deep Blue Sea Pendant
Vivid blues and rich emerald green seas ripple and curl across the surface of this round deep blue sea pendant necklace by Julie Fountain.
Available in two sizes, the disc shaped pendants are individually handmade by from molten glass.
The jewel like colours decorate both sides in a design incorporating Julie’s trademark swirling wave patterns created with melted silver.
During the process, brightly coloured 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 differences in their composition from the images shown.
A unique and individual piece of quality glass jewellery handmade in the UK.
