Ages ago, long before I harboured a dream of being able to make my own lampwork beads, I bought some stunning beads from an Etsy seller. They were a bit of an investment, but one I couldn't resist. I thought of using them with my sea glass to make an unusual necklace. From time to time they came out of the box, I ooh and aah'd but nothing more.
Then I realised I needed a picture for the North Somerset Arts Week brochure, happening May 2011. The deadline was approaching. I wanted something different to pictures I've submitted in past years. Yesterday I finally got on with it. An hour or so plugged into my gorgeous purple iPod in my studio and I had enough sea glass drilled beads to be going on with. Now I just needed to make it into a necklace ....!
Here's the finished result. I'm rather pleased with it. It will be available for sale during NSAW, maybe before.
Sea glass, lampwork beads and sterling silver necklace; matching earrings available.
