Life is a Jungle Mala ~ Fall/Winter 2017-2018 DEVOTION design series
♡ 108 lampwork beads created by glass artist and designer Jenelle Aubade over a hot torch flame one by one with meditative purpose practicing mindfulness, clarity, and having fun =)
♡ Rich corals splash against a deep earthen jungle-scape of greens, raku, and violet with touches of fine .999 silver and silvered ivory. Some of the beads are etched for a smooth matte feel, others are finished in high gloss. Each bead is lightly faceted and sculpted by hand while the glass is molten in the flame for a textured ‘feels-good’ finish. The glass was sourced from Italy and Germany, Murano and Reichenbach lines, and annealed for a long soak in my kiln to further durability and long lasting wear/love.
Necklace details ~ ♡ Finished, or continued, with a tassel. Each bead is individually knotted with sturdy hemp fiber. 32 inches of lampwork that hangs to 16 inches, not including tassel length. https://www.etsy.com/listing/538824872/life-is-a-jungle-mala-lampwork-bead
