Sea Breeze Heart Shaped Earrings | Julie Fountain

Sea Breeze Heart Shaped Earrings

£39.00
Description
These sea breeze inspired heart shaped drop earrings have a mixture of the palest blue etched opaque glass, transparent glass and a generous wave of melted fine silver droplets.

Individually handmade by Julie Fountain, each is created from molten glass in a design that incorporates Julie’s trademark swirling wave patterns of fine silver.

Working from her studio in beautiful Malvern, England, Julie 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 slight differences in their composition from the images shown.

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

Complete with sterling silver findings. Gift-boxed
