beach ball necklace B


A favourite place of mine, the beach. A favourite play toy, beach balls. They bounce, they float, they're bright and happy. Everyone smiles when there's a beach ball around. Hence, a beach ball necklace.

Each of the 8 polka dotted beads are approximately 12mm x 14mm. The biggest dangling beach ball is 15mm x 18mm and the small lime bead is 6mm x 8mm. They are connected with sterling silver chain and it closes with a lobster claw. The total length of the necklace is 28”, the purple ball hangs 40 mm lower. This is long enough that you can simply slip it over your head.

My hands made these beads. I use Effetre glass, a little CIM and occasionally Vetrofond. All my beads are kiln annealed, thoroughly cleaned and inspected. There is no paint on any of my beads, just glass upon glass upon glass.

Please remember the jewelry looks larger than life in the pictures which is why it is important to check the size. I have tried to capture the colours as accurately as possible but many monitors vary.
