An artisan lamp work bead, reminiscent of a terrestrial sphere, is framed with schalenblende beads & faceted pearls.
Schalenblende is a unique stone comprised of sphalerite, wurtzite and pyrite in one natural geologic formation. The appearance echos the terrene (earthy) presentation of the lampwork beads. The earthy color of the pearls continues the story told by this necklace.
The focal piece was created in the studio of Barbara Becker Simon, renown lampwork and metal artist of 40 years.
The exceptional quality of the components have come together to create an unparalleled, unique piece.
