AC014 Neptune necklace
Neptune, fourth largest and densest Solar System planet, has 14 moons. Named after the Roman god of the sea because it’s blue.
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.
