Red and Gold Twist necklace - featuring a set of five of my handmade, flame-worked glass beads.  The colour of these glass focal beads are matched because they were all made within the same flame-working session, using exactly the same red and clear glass rods - but they are not identical in shape or size.  This is a deliberate measure to ensure a far more interesting design to the necklace.  

This necklace is a longer length and has been designed to hang down over a garment, such as a jumper or t-shirt, but actually looks stunning worn with a low cut dress as the bottom focal bead rests just above the cleavage.

  • Red and Gold Twist necklace - featuring a set of five of my handmade, flame-worked glass beads.  The colour of these glass focal beads are matched because they were all made within the same flame-working session, using exactly the same red and clear glass rods - but they are not identical in shape or size.  This is a deliberate measure to ensure a far more interesting design to the necklace.  

    On either side of each focal bead is a run of translucent ruby glass beads, Czech glass facetted beads and Japanese galvanised gold plated glass seed beads, and then a section of matt red with galvanized gold glass seed beads woven into a spiral through a main core of glossy cherry red glass seed beads.  The necklace is finished off with a handwoven toggle and bar clasp, using the same matt red and galvanised gold seed beads. 

    The thread used is a specialized beading thread and involves at least 6 passes through the main focal beads, four passes through the bicone intersections, and three passes through the spiral sections and the toggle and bar clasp.  The necklace has been designed and built to last.  The necklace is also longer than usual and is designed to hang down over the top of a dress or jumper, or the outside of a blouse.

    Measurements: 65.5cms from end to end.  The central (and largest focal bead) is 1.6cms across.
