A fun little borosilicate glass bead by lampwork artisan Christina Burkhart of a speckled design with swirls in colors of opalescent plums, dark ambers, yellows and aqua blues which has been encased for extra depth and magnification sits at the center of this loop pendant, surrounded by a mix of glass beads in fuchsia hues and 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.
Necklace also looks great on a burgundy red cord - just let me know in Notes To Seller if you want it on a color of cord other than the black cord shown here!
There is a matching pair of earrings for this necklace as well.
