Calling all glass lovers, calling all glass lovers!
This beautiful necklace is the perfect marriage of uranium glass and lampwork glass. One large lampwork bead has been strung onto this necklace as a pendant. Don't worry about this lampwork bead sliding along this necklace, it has been strung in a way to keep it in place with 8mm uranium glass beads on either side inside of it. This allows a beautiful glow from within, when the necklace is lit with a UV light.
8mm and 6mm givre fire polished faceted uranium glass beads rotate interchangeably among gold toned accent beads. Gold plated crown and sceptre toggle closure, with a gold toned hallmark charm, hold this necklace together.
Necklace measures 19 inches from end to end, when laid flat and open.
Necklace will be shipped in a gift box, with a keychain UV light.
**Uranium glass contains minute amounts of uranium dioxide, and glows under UV black light. Uranium glass level of radioactivity varies by piece, ranging from less than 1 percent to up to 25 percent by weight, but there is no recognized danger to handling or using uranium glass, according to the U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission. Uranium glass beads are even further diluted than the glass in glassware, as it is mixed with other glass to make the beads. Under 50CPM is normal levels of background radiation. Under 100CPM is not thought to have any health effects. Outside air in the United States of America averages around 25CPM. I check all my pieces with a geiger meter to make sure they clock in at safe levels.**
