Lampworked Glass and Seed Bead Necklace
This necklace is full of muted colors of fall. I started with Handmade Lampworked Glass Beads made by Bastille Bleu! The Leaf drop glass beads made in a style called Raku, are black with speckles of colors such as blues, brown and pinks. As accents, she included wonderful, pink frosted glass rounds. To accent the wonderful colors of the lampworked beads, I added 4mm grey crystals at the pink frosted beads. Then I added 3mm blue crystals to the raku leaves. For shine, I added 6mm Sterling Silver Bali Daisy Beads, and Thai Sterling Silver Bead Caps. The rest of the necklace is made of three braided strands of multi colored, frosted glass seed beads, accented by a little sparkle with 6mm Swarovski AB Crystals, and 5mm Champagne AB Spacers. To finish the necklace, I used two more Thai Sterling Silver Bead Caps, a Sterling Silver Lobster Clasp, and Jump Ring. I also included a 2" Sterling extension chain, ending in Swarovski Crystals.
Necklace is 18.5" + 2" long.
