Product Description
Sowers Crystal Strawberry Necklace

An elegant, clear, solid crystal strawberry made by hand and placed on fine, gold-filled chain, 20" long. The strawberry is 7/8" top to bottom, and is three-dimensional.

SOWERS CRYSTAL PENDANTS ARE CREATED BY AN OLD EUROPEAN TECHNIQUE KNOWN AS LAMPWORK. EACH IS MADE COMPLETELY BY HAND WITHOUT THE USE OF ANY FORM OR MOLD. IN THE LAMPWORKING PROCESS RODS OF BOROSILICATE CRYSTAL ARE HEATED TO MORE THAN 2000 DEGREES CENTIGRADE WITH A TORCH (LAMP). AT THIS TEMPERATURE THE GLASS BECOMES SOFT, AND THE ARTIST IS ABLE TO SHAPE IT USING VERY SIMPLE BRASS TOOLS. THE FINISHED PIECE MUST BE HEATED IN AN ANNEALING OVEN TO 600 DEGREES TO ELIMINATE STRESS IN THE GLASS. BOROSILICATE IS A VERY DURABLE AND CLEAR CRYSTAL. ALL MADE IN THE U.S.A.
