Description

The Aim: To create a necklace that can be worn both day and night. This necklace is perfect for those occasions when your about to step out the door but need to give your outfit at little extra lift. And then in the evening a simple dress can be taken into an eye-catching outfit, ideal for a night out.

The Method:
I made these six glass beads using a flame torch to melt and shape each bead individually. After kiln annealing and cleaning them I strung the beads on gorgeous cream waxed cotton cord. I designed the wooden V pendant to give the necklace a modern, dramatic look. The soft sustainable bamboo is unvarnished and is FSC Certified.

The Finer Details:
- The waxed cotton cord is approx 85-89cm and can be worn at any length. There are no fasteners which make this the perfect necklace for those with allergies to metals. The cord is held together by a small wooden bead and you can simply tie the necklace at the nape of your neck.
- The six glass beads vary in size between approx 1-1.5cm each.
- The wooden V is approx 8cm x 10cm.

Nice to Know:
- All my glasswork is made in my studio on the outskirts of Melbourne, Australia.
- All my glass work has been electronically kiln annealed which makes them nice and strong.

Extra:
I like to think my glass beads have an added bonus of being 'touchable.' The lumps and bumps I intentionally create in each bead not only make them unique but also a delight to feel.
I source local Australian materials, where possible, and both the waxed cotton cord and laser cut bamboo have been supplied by small Australian businesses.

FAQs

I take much care with shipping my items. I use padded envelopes and wrap each item in either tissue paper or muslin/jute drawstring bag. Earrings are packaged in small kraft boxes. In the case of more than one pair of earrings being purchased, I will place 2-3 pairs in each box. Please indicate if your purchase is a gift and you would like either backing cards included or individual boxes.

Orders will be sent via Australia Post. If you would prefer Express post please choose this option at checkout.
The cost quoted is based on information provided by Australia Post. In the chance that postage is actually cheaper by more than $1 I will refund the difference and celebrate at saving you a little hard earned cash. Yay!
My glasswork is much stronger than you would expect. All items have been annealed in an electronically controlled kiln for ultimate strength.
All beads are solid glass and not blown/hollow.
I take care with packaging when shipping but please let me know ASAP if an item arrives broken.
If you suffer from allergies or sensitivities please read the materials used in the item description or contact me for further information, if needed.

I have chosen to use titanium posts for my studs as there is less chance of an allergic reaction than using stainless steel and silver plate.

My dangle earrings have quality sterling silver hooks.

When designing my beaded necklaces on cotton cord I wanted to create an allergy friendly necklace and I completely avoided any metals. The clasp at the neck is made from wood.
