Art Jewelry Pendant with a Lampworked Bead and a Sapphire

An Art Jewelry Pendant – what I made in the studio this week

I was lucky to spend some time in the studio this week.  First I made some lampworked beads.

I really love these beads.  They look like prong set stones all around the disk.  

Then I fabricated some silver settings – one for the glass bead and one for a sapphire slice

I made the setting for the sapphire slice so it would fit into the hole of the glass bead – which would be set on it’s side.

The glass bead was set into a sterling silver back that I had soldered some wire that would become prongs to hold the glass bead in place.  

All finished….art jewelry pendant
