AC011 Jupiter necklace

Planet Jupiter, named after the Roman king of the gods, is the largest Solar System planet. The Red Spot was first seen by Italian astronomer Giovanni Cassini in 1665.

The lampwork beads are made, one by one, in my Christchurch, New Zealand, workspace at XCHC, a shared maker space. They are made by melting coloured glass in a gas/oxygen flame and manipulating the surface so they resemble the NASA images of the planets.

The bead is strung on a 45cm sterling silver chain with sterling silver wire setting and bead caps.
