Lampwork Art Glass Necklace, Heart of Glass, Twisted Love, Handmade Beads, Copper Wire Wrapping, Distinctive Style by Elksong Jewelry
A singular, art to wear necklace, "Twisted Love" features a handmade flame worked glass abstract heart focal in copper wire wrap with complimentary lampwork glass beads.
50Glamorous, bohemian & distinctive, this necklace starts with an Elksong original flame worked glass focal, a curvaceous, twisting abstract heart in lush rose & lavender. Layered between the opaque swirled pink base & clear light purple casing is pure silver leaf, for a metallic gleam, and a curling skein of lemon/melon/ivory latticino decoration. The heart focal is caught up in a delicate & densely textural net of oxidized copper wire wrapping that coils & flows around the bead and forms a triple looped bail at the top.
The focal hangs from a necklace created from our own handmade lampwork glass beads, the same shade of pink as in the heart and a gorgeous, streaky purple. Each bead is framed with antiqued copper cast metal caps & beads and joined together with oxidized copper wire wrap links.
The back lengths of the necklace are doubled loops of oxidized copper belcher link chain that attach to an oxidized, solid copper ornate toggle clasp.
Also note; the focal's front & back are different & each is unique & beautiful...this necklace could be worn with either side facing forward. The fourth photo shows what we consider the back side.
This richly romantic, bohemian necklace measures 20" (50.80 cm) in total length, including the toggle clasp. The focal measures 2.5" (6.35 cm) from bail to tip and about 1.25" (3.17 cm) at it's widest.
Oxidized copper will continue to darken and/or change color with age & wear. This piece's focal can be carefully polished with a jewelry polishing cloth, or even flannel or chamois cloth, holding it firmly & supporting a small section of wire wrap in a firm grip while gently polishing.
All of our studio-made lampwork glass creations are properly kiln-annealed, thoroughly cleaned and ready for you to enjoy!
