The Glass Strawberry Necklace you see here features one of my handmade glass strawberry beads, nestled amongst my handmade glass leaves in dark and light greens, and hung on Sterling Silver figure-eight chain. Like real strawberries, each of mine is made with dozens of individual seeds set into tiny depressions on its surface. The leaves of the strawberry have been melted onto the surface and their tips slightly rounded so they will not chip or snag on clothing. These beads are hand-formed in the flame of a torch from colored glass. As a result, the color will not rub, flake or chip off, and no two strawberries are exactly alike.
The strawberry on this necklace is just over 3/4 inch high. The total length for the necklace you see above is 20 inches and it is finished with a lobster clasp. The strawberry is centered at 18 inches, but you can wear the necklace at any length between 17 and 19 inches by clipping the lobster into the link of your choice. A matching dark green glass leaf hangs on the free end of the chain. 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 strawberry necklace designs and matching strawberry jewelry by viewing the Strawberries Page of this site.
Strawberry 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.
