Industrial Chic Necklace with Hand Forged Beads

in: Necklace



Industrial Chic Necklace with Hand Forged Beads- A new-to-me style of hollow beads, this necklace is comprised of two square beads, which have been textured, cut by hand, dapped with a concave curve to meet at the ends.  The sterling silver tubing inserted in the middle serves as the access point for the leather cording.  Truth be told, these were challenging to make, but the effort was worth it!  I flanked these square beads with gorgeous handmade lampwork glass, made by artist Julie Burgard.  The lampwork is square as well, with beautiful swirls of blue, and given a matte finish.  Tiny sterling silver spacers complete this very Industrial Chic Design.

The beads have been strung on Greek Leather, and the necklace fastens securely with a sterling silver lobster clasp.  The necklace measures approximately 18 3/4" in length.  The sterling silver beads each measure approximately 3/4" square.

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.
