Sterling Silver and Lampwork Pendant on Red Leather Necklace

This is the result of our recent collaboration with talented silversmith Jeanine Martel! Jeanine has over 25 years experience in metal smithing and was kind enough to create a few special pieces along with Guy's sweet lampwork cabochons. We are delighted with the outcome!

 

For this piece she used her magic to capture one of Guy's glass beads in a unique setting. These silver pieces were created by hand and so they have a strong 'one of a kind' energy to them! Jeanine created two separate pieces of silver and shaped them into curves to compliment the lampwork. She made the bottom one hang from hinges! So the glass bead moves as well as the bottom silver piece. Absolutely fabulous is all I can say! This is why buying handmade just can't be beat. An exquisite and unique piece of jewelry to give as a gift or add to your own collection or artisan works!

 

The lampwork bead was made by Guy in our lampwork studio. He started out with a base of clear turquoise blue and added endcaps in clear light purple. Using his own hand-pulled cane, he wrapped the bead with its flowing colors then placed turquoise dots inbetween the lines. So gorgeous! Melted smooth and flat. I'm in love with the way it swivels!
