Marbles were originally made of (you guessed it!) marble and these glass marbles mimic that stone. There are all made using a base glass which gives variations in colour and then mottled bands are added to complete the 'marbled marble' effect.
Each one of my marbles is handmade and will be unique. Your marble will be the same colourway as those in the pictures but not the actual marble shown (you will receive one marble).
Your marble will be packaged in a calico bag and I will include a small glass ring you can stand it on to stop it rolling away!
Marble size 20-22mm diameter
All my lampwork, including these marbles, is handmade in a flame and then kiln annealed for strength and durability. Of course, they are still glass so are not indestructible! Please remember marbles are a choking hazard for children and should be kept away from pets.

Niobium is an element (formerly known as Colombium) which can be anodised, and therefore coloured, just like Aluminium. It is light and strong which is important for jewellery but possibly more important is that it is hypoallergenic. This makes it suitable for those with sensitivity to other metals.
Aluminium (or Aluminum if you prefer) can be anodised by submerging it in acid and subjecting to an electrical current. This results in a microscopic, almost honeycomb surface. Colour added to that surface is sealing into the chambers with heat and the result is permanently coloured metal - The colours you see on my anodised Aluminium cannot wash or rub off.
Aluminium is extremely light which makes is perfect for comfortable jewellery. It cannot be soldered, like Silver for example, so you will find items like my Pansy Stud earrings can be separated into the studs (Sterling Silver or Niobium) and the anodised Aluminium flower. This means you can wear the studs alone if you wish - two pairs for the price of one!
