glacier necklace

Recently I came across old photos of my visit to the Fox Glacier in New Zealand and I was remembering the spectacular colour and depth of the ice. They aren't white. There's a core of blue and a shimmer and sparkle. I imagine that icebergs are like glaciers when you see them close up. Maybe one day I'll sail past an iceberg just to see the blue ice. Or I can just wear my glacier necklace and look at photos of icebergs, that's much warmer.

Each glacier bead measures approximately 15mm x 15mm. I've hand faceted them for an organic look and extra sparkle. The beads are separated with sterling silver finding. The necklace is on a sterling silver snake chain in your choice of lengths.

Each bead is individually made by me! There is no paint on any of my beads, just glass upon glass upon glass. Each bead is 4 - 8 layers of glass. Around layer 3 I roll the bead in fine silver leaf, then encase it in more glass. When the bead is large I mash it flat so that the silver disperses. This is what gives my beads the shimmering sparkle. This will light up a room and bring you oodles of compliments.

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.
