Sand Heart Earrings

£39.00
Description
These heart shaped earrings, inspired by the ever changing patterns of the sands, are made of beautiful sandy coloured ivory glass enhanced with melted silver.

Individually handmade by Julie Fountain in her studio, she turns simple rods of glass into beautiful, hard wearing pieces of wearable art.

This highly skilled process is known as lampworking, the 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.

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 earrings there may be differences in their composition from the images shown.

A unique and individual piece of quality glass jewellery handmade in the UK.
