This beautiful rainbow glass bead necklace is hand made by Judy Newton.
The beads on this necklace are hand-shaped from coloured window glass. Each glass bead is handcrafted to a unique shape, and has a sea-softened appearance. The beads are then threaded on hand-plaited black cord, and fastened with a matching glass toggle.
Judy is anAuckland based jeweller, originally from the South Island. She finds inspiration in the natural landscape of New Zealand and in Pacific designs. She uses many different types of recycled materials such as coloured window glass off-cuts sourced from leadlight-glass studios; the ‘pressed’ glass often had a former life in the doors and windows of old villas, or old broken china cups and plates, which are all then individually shaped and engraved to bring new life to something old.
