Argonaut pendant


A distinctive Glass bead pendant with metallic elements topped with our own design of  Sterling silver cap complete with a 450mm long Sterling silver chain and lobster clasp

We are delighted to offer this beautiful Argonaut glass pendant from Avalon Jewellery.

We hand-make and anneal all our glass beads in our bead kiln, providing the strengthening process that removes any internal stress from the glass, letting the beads cool slowly and carefully.

The word ‘Argo’ means ‘swift’.  The very nature of working with molten glass means that it is a fast and ever-moving medium needing complete concentration and ‘swift’ reactions.  This is particularly useful when dodging exploding glass, which is how art glass rewards impatient makers.

Pendants have existed since ancient times and were sometimes worn as amulets – a form of protection or as talismans, thought to provide the wearer with supernatural powers.   So far, we haven’t heard from our customers whether our pendants carry these sort of properties but we really enjoy making them and like to think they have a pleasing weight and original look to them.

We have chosen this specific mix of beautiful art glass with its metallic elements to compliment almost any outfit.  We hope you agree.

Please note that due to the handmade process of flaming glass, each Argonaut pendant bead may differ slightly from the bead pictured, giving each one a unique handmade finish.
