Measurements: 7" long x 2" spoon width. Handmade by Julie Bonney. For Julia, working with glass - transparent, opaque, translucent - in every color imaginable, richly saturated or pale as a whisper, is as fun as it gets. I make beads from glass rods that come from Italy, Germany, China, and the U.S. Sitting at a torch that�s about 3,000 degrees I melt, shape, and decorate the glass, and then anneal my beads in a kiln overnight to make them strong and stable. I use my beads to construct jewelry and to create beaded handles for objects such as jam spoons, cheese knives, and coffee scoops. I especially enjoy this aspect of my work because I like creating pieces that are functional. In my jewelry I incorporate sterling silver chain and findings and sometimes semi-precious stones such as citrine, turquoise, lapis, and pyrite.
