Casual crew-neck necklace in rubber with handmade glass disc beads.
The glass beads are decorated in green, orange and turquoise.
Each beads measure 8mm x 1,5 to 2cm diameter.
These are lampwork glass beads made with the contemporary Muranese tecnique. We use a flame to melt a glass rod. The molten glass is then wound onto a metal mandrel. The diameter of the mandrel will give the hole size of the beads. Large holes like the ones of these beads, 6mm, have been very popular in the last few years.
Once the base of the bead is ready we proceed with the decoration and at the end the bead is putted inside a kiln to control the cooling down of the glass. The slower Murano glass cools down the better is to prevent any additional stress to the piece.
Necklace total lenght is 47cm.
All my glass creations are handmade by me in my Murano Atelier and are subjected to proper cooling to ensure their durability.
Colours may slightly differ due to different monitor settings.
