Recherche Necklace with Hollow Lampworked Bead

Regular price $190.00 Sale

I like making hollow beads.  They are light and easy to wear and very strong.  To make a hollow bead with 2 holes (so you can string it); I make in on a steel mandrel and capture a bubble of air that expands in the heat of the torch.  But sometimes I blow a hollow bead at the end of a steel tube.  Now there is a perfect hollow bead with one hole.  I can treat that "bead" like a half drilled pearl... or in several other manners.  This hollow bead has 2 holes and swings on a teardrop link of sterling silver.

The chain is teardrop links of sterling silver.  It hangs approximately 22 inches.  The bead is not quite round and measures about an inch.  A lovely one of a kind statement necklace to wear everyday.
