This dainty lampwork heart shaped necklace has been created in my home studio with Italian and American glass, wrapped with fine silver wire which has been melted in and then annealed to ensure that it strengthened for many years of wear. It has then been hung on sterling silver findings on a leather chain with a 925 sterling silver clasp.
The lampwork bead pendant measures 50 mm in height and 23 mm in diameter, the overall length of the necklace is 43 cm (or 17 inches).
Care instructions: Whilst each piece goes through an annealing process to strengthen the glass, do take care not to drop them. The piece is best cleaned with warm soapy water and a polishing cloth however commercial silver dips can be used.
