This Glass Blueberry Pendant Necklace was designed for a little girl. Her Dad wanted something delicate that could still take a bit of rough treatment from a child. This 4mm Sterling Silver wheat chain is lightweight but strong.
Like all my glass blueberry beads these three were created by melting glass in the flame of a torch directly onto the twisted ends of copper wires, which became the stems. Because the copper stem is embedded inside the glass it can never be pulled free. The points of the flower star on the end of each blueberry have been rounded to prevent them from chipping and so they cannot snag on clothing. The surface coloring of each berry is achieved by sprinkling it with many layers of powdered glass which are then completely melted into the surface. Because no paint is used the color will never rub, flake or chip off. These berries are made one at a time so no two are exactly alike.
The length of the necklace you see above is 16" and it is finished with a sterling silver lobster clasp. This particular chain style is also available in 18 and 20 inch lengths. Alternatively, the bail and berries could be used with a different chain or cord of your choice up to 6mm in diameter of leather, silver, or other materials. Just let me know your requirements when you order. Price will depend upon the length and type of chain and the market price of silver at the time you place your order.
