Deep Blue Sea Heart Pendant
This deep blue sea, heart shaped pendant necklace with its rich, vivid jewel like hues has been individually handmade from molten glass by Julie Fountain.
Its surface is decorated on both sides in a design incorporating Julie’s trademark swirl pattern with 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 pendants there may be differences in their composition from the images shown.
A unique and individual piece of quality glass jewellery handmade in the UK.
The pendant has an extra heavyweight sterling silver pin and hallmarked ring bail, whist the sterling silver Belcher chain is available in a choice of three lengths, 16", 18" or 24".
