Lampwork and Silver Necklace

A few years ago when I was going through a particularly difficult time in my cancer treatment, my husband presented me with a beautiful crystal dragonfly, along with a story. His wonderfully written words I'll treasure always. In his story he said that the dragonfly represented courage and brought to mind the abundance of what we had as we faced this battle together. Dragonflies have held a special place in my heart ever since.

When I saw this incredible focal lampwork bead by Cindy Hoo with it's fine silver dragonfly, I knew I would use it to create a treasured piece just for myself. She's given the focal bead a wonderful aged look that is so perfect for this type of focal piece.

Here I've combined Sterling silver and pure copper wire - twisting, coiling and bending - to create this one-of-a-kind necklace. A Hill Tribe silver dragonfly joins the fellow in the lampwork to strengthen this necklace's theme.

This delighful necklace is one of my favorites to wear. The focal measures nearly 4 inches across. I've used additional artisan lampwork in the necklace and then gave the entire necklace a warm rich patina.

On the reverse of the focal bead is the word 'Fly'. The perfect sentiment as we face life's challenges and give ourselves the freedom to soar!

Not For Sale.
