The deep aqua in this ocean heart reminds me of warm South Florida waters.
I shaped this bead from rods of glass in the flame of a torch using teal and ivory glass with a fine silver "surf". Then it was gently annealed in a digitally controlled kiln to remove stress created by working the glass. This makes it a treasure that, with proper care, will last for generations.
This bead is medium to large at 1 1/2 inches (3mm) both side to side and top to bottom.
The chain is sterling silver and 18 inches long.
Each of my beads is one of a kind. I make them in series, but I can't make another one just the same. The necklace you see pictured here is the one you will receive.
If you would like me to make you a heart with Teal or Pale Blue glass, please choose that option.

To prevent tarnishing, please wipe the chain and bail with a soft cloth after wearing and store your necklace in the plastic bag provided.
