A look at how it’s done
Julie Fountain designs and finishes all her pieces of unique lampwork jewellery from her Malvern base in the West Midlands.
The process of lampwork is highly skilled, and Julie is one of the experts in the process in the UK. The lampwork beads are created one at a time by melting and shaping rods of Italian glass in a flame, and slowly kiln-cooled for durability. The resulting shapes are then mounted on silver and hallmarked in the UK.
Inspired by the sea
The entire range is inspired by the sea and comes in four beautiful colourways- Sand & Sea is the original design, accented with a touch of bright coral, the glossy Deep Blue Sea and the softer, more subtle colours of palest blue Sea Spray and lavender Sea Mist. The new collection for 2018, Beach Babe, completes the product range, with finer sized pendants in three shapes across all four colourways.
The uniqueness, and collectability of the product collection has been a major attraction to international fans. The hardest decision is; which range to choose from as they’re all stunning.
