A kinetic delight – a large glass link made from clear borosilicate glass passes through 5 frosted beads. The beads move freely round the link, making this almost as much fun to play with as to wear.
The glass rods used to create this link are clear 4mm rods, allowing for a delicate look.
This necklace is made by forming a clear link through five frosted beads.. The frosted beads are made first, then joined with the clear glass link. The frosted finish is created by tumbling the glass beads with sand and grit – this creates a finish similar to sea glass and it feels silky smooth to touch.
Borosilicate glass is hard wearing and durable – it’s very similar to the original material used in pyrex dishes that have been a kitchen staple for many years. To ensure strength and durability all of our lampwork items are annealed in a digitally controlled kiln. This allows any stress introduced during the melting and shaping of the glass to be removed. We understand that accidents do happen – and in the unlikely event that your necklace is damaged we offer free repairs – we’ll just ask you to cover postage costs.
This necklace is made from a single clear glass link approximately 18mm wide and 45mm long (3/4 in by 1 3/4 in), and is strung on a stainless steel chain 70cm / 28″ long. The chain closes with a lobster clasp. If you’d like the chain shortened let us know the length you’d like in the notes section at checkout and we’ll do that.
Your necklace will be securely packed in an pinewood gift box. Boxes measure 7cm x 7 cm x 5cm ( 3 3/4in x 2 3/4in / 2 in).
We use felt and bubble wrap to ensure everything is secure for posting (and we always have bubble wrap because the glass rods are wrapped in it when they come to us)
We work from a studio in Harrogate, North Yorkshire. All items are ready to post.
