This necklace was lovingly crafted by hand; inspired by Eric Carle's The Very Hungry Caterpillar story, has one bright red bead and 8 different green beads. This topic is very close to my heart and I love making these necklaces. The necklace is made from quality rubber tubing and sterling silver findings.

This necklace measures approximately 43cm (17”). I would suggest you cut a string to this measurement to see how it would fit you.

My lampworked beads are carefully inspected for cracks or defects and also diligently cleaned of bead release with the use of a Dremel and annealed in a digitally controlled kiln.

If you’d like to see some pictures and read about the process of making beads like these, visit my blog: http://gabiloraine.blogspot.com/2010/08/lampworking-day-28-open-house.html

Please contact me if you have any questions or concerns. : )

    These earrings are the most comfortable and beautiful earrings I've ever had, by far. Beautifully crafted beadwork, and the hanger wire used is snug and perfectly comfortable through the ear. I wear them everywhere! Thank you so much Gabi!

    This ring is gorgeous and suits me perfectly. Gabriela also sent a free gift with this, as she was worried that this would be too thin and break. I love it so much I'm going to baby it so it stays strong! Thanks for your inspired wearable art!

    Thank you so much for the ring. It is so beautiful and I love wearing it. Also, thanks for the warning that the postal service would be slow. It wasn't too long. I also like that you make rings in smaller sizes for those of us with narrow fingers!
