The focal bead used in this loop pendant is so wonderful! It's a luscious summer garden of organic borosilicate glass - with deeply encased yellow sunflowers over a blue-green swirled base, encased in a layer of clear glass to give it watery depth. The bead is irregularly shaped for added interest - the work of artisan lampworker Rosemary Tottosy of Rosebeads-n-Bottles. It is surrounded by lovely encased swirled blue-turquoise borosilicate glass donut beads, fine glass faceted Czech beads in yellow and blue-green 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 nice on chocolate brown, tan, emerald green, or navy blue cord! Just let me know in Notes To Seller if you want it on a color other than the black shown here when purchasing.
