Azurite and Artisan Glass Sterling Silver Necklace

in: Necklace



Azurite and Artisan Glass Sterling Silver Necklace -  Lampwork Glass Beads - my very first love into this foray of jewelry design was Lampwork Glass Beads. Artisan made, each one a work of art in and of itself, by artist Jody Brimhall. Each bead is different from the next - just like a natural gemstone. I have wrapped each bead in heavy gauge sterling silver - flanked with genuine sterling silver beads hand crafted by artists in Bali, Indonesia. The cool tones of purples, blues and greens begged to be wrapped into one Statement Necklace. Please zoom in on the photos to see the details of these incredible beads, up close and personal!

I bezel set in sterling silver a beautifully cut Azurite Gemstone -- I believe the lapidary cut this stone just for these beads!  Two sets of intrically detailed Bali Beads, and a handmade chain and clasp, complete this design.

A note about Bali Beads: Each of these sterling silver beads is crafted by hand by artists in Bali. The artist applies granulation (tiny balls of silver) and/or filigree wires in detailed patterns that are further enhanced by an oxidation process. Stunning all by themselves, but made special with these artisan glass beads.

The necklace measures 19" in length.The Azurite bezel-set cabochon measures just over 1 1/8" in length. This is truly a statement necklace to be enjoyed for years to come.

 All metals used in this design are .925 sterling silver.

Jewelry is made using traditional metalworking techniques, including soldering, filing, sanding, texturing, polishing, and tumbling in my home studio.  Jewelry comes wrapped in a cotton-lined gift box and ships quickly. Please feel free to contact me with any questions.  

NOTE:  100% of the proceeds from the sale of these earrings will be donated to Miracle Horse Rescue, a 501(c)3 Non-Profit Organization. From the bottom of my heart, thank you for helping me help those who cannot help themselves!
