The Glass Salmonberry Necklace you see here features three of my handmade glass salmonberry beads, accented by six green firepolished Czech crystals and hung on 14/20 Gold-Filled figure-eight chain. The center salmonberry is usually about 18mm high, with the side berries being a little smaller - about 16mm. Like real salmonberries, each has a slightly translucent quality with a glossy surface. These beads are hand-formed in the flame of a torch from hand-mixed colored glass, so the color will not rub, flake or chip off, and no two salmonberries are exactly alike.
I make salmonberries in a range of colors from unripe golden yellow through tart apricot (shown), orange, and deep red. Ripeness other than the apricot shown here is available by special order.
The standard length for the necklace you see above is 18” and it is finished with a toggle clasp. Different lengths and clasp styles are available by special order. Like all of my jewelry, this design is available in both 14/20 Gold-Filled and Sterling Silver. You can see alternate salmonberry necklace designs and matching salmonberry jewelry by viewing the Salmonberries Page of this site.
Salmonberry jewelry can also be custom made with high-karat gold or platinum findings and accented with Swarovski Crystal or gemstone beads. Some examples can be viewed on the Custom Jewelry Page.
