This Glass Blueberry Necklace features one of my handmade glass ripe blueberry beads, accented by six olivine green Swarovski Elements crystals and hung on your choice of Sterling Silver or Gold-Filled figure-eight chain.
The overall length of the necklace is 20" and it is finished with a lobster clasp. You may adjust the length anywhere between 18 and 20 inches by hooking the clasp into the chain loop of your choice.
Each blueberry bead is created by melting glass in the flame of a torch, directly onto the twisted end of a copper wire which becomes the stem. 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 powdered glass which is 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.
