A stylish alternative Easter gift that can be worn and appreciated after the chocolate variety have gone. They are so beautiful and unique why limit them to Easter gifts.
There are 5 designs available, these are:
This green design has pure silver foil melted into the surface of transparent green glass and it is then rolled in a blend of glass frit. This design is etched so the glass is matte rather than shiny. (seaswirl)
The purple is transparent amethyst glass rolled in a different frit blend, including lighter and darker purple and a little highlight of sage green. (amethyst swirl)
Transparent pale emerald green with a reactive frit. The frit has been raked around the bead to give a sort of feathered design. Etched for a frosted finish (green feathered)
opaque copper green glass decorated with pure silver foil and frit in shades of aqua, pink, mauve and blue swirled on the surface. Etched for a matt finish. (blue swirl)
transparent amber over a core of white, decorated with pure silver foil and reactive raku frit, then etched for a frosted finish. (frosted amber)
Pure white opaque glass with a band of turquoise and silvered ivory, etched for a smooth matt finish. (white). -out of stock
The eggs have been handmade using layers of molten glass, which has been built up while working in an open flame, so each bead is individually handmade. No two eggs will be identical which makes each necklace unique and individual.
The glass is a mixture of Italian effetre, more commonly known as Murano glass.
Once a bead is complete it is taken from the flame to a preheated kiln. The beads are held at a constant temperature for some time in order to remove the stress that has been caused by manipulating the glass. They are then cooled gradually to room temperature. This kiln annealling ensures the beads are as strong as possible.
You can add a gold or sterling silver letter charm for a personalised jewellery gift.
