Glass And Crystal Butterfly Art Necklace
Jewelry - Metal, Swarovski Crystals, Glass, Wire
THIS NECKLACE IS SOLD I just love coloured glass, especially when it's thick and chunky, like these glass beads. I have used a large flat purple, a smaller thicker sapphire blue and a chunky teal green square. I have copper foiled each one and I think this really brings out the intense colour and frames them nicely. I soldered and scrolled the purple glass and placed a peridot crystal in the centre. The sapphire blue glass has wire thread through the centre and I have connected it to the centre of the bottom scroll. The square teal green I have placed it on the angle and placed a scroll back and front. Beside the purple glass I have 2 curved scrolls, the outer has a round amethyst crystal and an aquamarine crystal pear drop and the inner scroll is wire wrapped with a rose bi-cone wired on the centre scroll. I have wire wrapped the bottom scroll under the sapphire glass and on the outer scrolls I have placed a round copper crystal with large olivine pear drops. Each side of the purple glass there are light colorado topaz navettes and above this I have a heart shaped scrolled wire with purple rounds in the centre and a large olivine pear crystal in the centre.. This is connected to the neckwire which I have cut some aqua glass and copper foiled it and soldered it to the neckwire with a purple jade pear and pink crystal and gold beads. The end outer scroll have an aquamarine medium pear and a golden shadow round connecting the back wire.
The necklace is gold plated, prong set and soldered by hand. There is a parrot clasp and an adjustable chain with a crystal on the end. The length of the centre piece from the top olivine pear to the bottom teal green diamond is 6 inches long and 4 1/2 inches wide.
The is a one-off piece and sure to become a collectors item of the future.
