Jewelry Inspired by Life's Necessities
Part 2 of 2

I know some readers out there are lamp work artisans so they can appreciate the craftsmanship of this designer better than the rest of us who don't make glass beads. The simple hand blown glass pendant on leather cord shown here is the work of Swedish artisan, Karl-Oskar . It looks simple but I am sure it is not easy to handle the molten glass just so it forms a drop like water does.





3 Euros from every sale of the "CLEAR DROP OF WATER" necklace goes to the UNICEF (United Nations International Children's Emergency Fund)'s water project in Ethiopia which strives to provide good water and sanitation to the people there. Good water is something we take so much for granted. Diseases caused by bad water kill 4,000 children worldwide - every single day.
