Yes, I admit it. I am obsessed with my new water opals. They are so much fun to make! The glass begins as clear and by playing with the flame I tease the pinks and reds to the surface with a little luck and a dash of magic.
Each bead is individually made by me! Each water opal bead is round, and measures approximately 14mm in diameter. The necklace closes with a sterling silver lobster claw anywhere on the sterling silver chain. The maximum length of this necklace is 22".
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 note that each water opal bead is made one by one. There will be slight variations. All are lovely.
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.
