AC004 Venus necklace
Venus is the second planet from our Sun, and the next brightest object in the night sky after the Moon. Named after the Roman goddess of love and beauty, Venus is a similar size and mass to Earth.
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.
