Carousel Of The Planets
The beautiful borosilicate glass creation of beautiful sparkling swirls under layers of deep reds at the center of this loop pendant is the work of lampwork artisan Brandie Rosenberry. It is surrounded cranberry red borosilicate donut beads encased in clear for depth and various glass beads in shades of reds, fuchsias, purples, and blues, with little silver accents.
The loop is double-strung with strong nylon coated wire and hanging from a satin cord which closes with a lobster-claw clasp that has a teeny starfish charm accent.
Borosilicate glass is a special kind of glass which is actually more durable than normal glass - it is the same kind used in Pyrex and is less dense than ordinary glass and it also requires a much higher temperature to melt compared to ordinary silicate glass.
