Day #5 of the Bead Soup Reveal..and Giveaway
Melissa of One Eared Pig is my bead soup partner.
she sent some wonderful lampwork beads..the focals reminded me of midnight on the ocean..like the west coast..not the texas gulf.
i have never used lampwork beads so it was a challenge , typically i reworked this necklace about 4 times, pretty happy with the way it turned out, i like the colors and rough feel .
the clasp is a star and moon that i antiqued to work with the darkness of the steel wire.
i wanted to play up the sandy color of the focal so i made ceramic pearls wire wrapped with annealed steel , 2 different gauges, add some MOP frames with seed beads and wooden beads inside, also made some wrapped turquoise bead links and the focal is suspended from a steel bar threaded with ceramic pearls and seed beads
my blog is doing a peek a boo thing with the comments..but i think if you click on the title the comment box appears..
thanks Lori for hosting this second Bead Soup Party..
below is the list of todays participating beaders..it too may be doing a peek a boo..does anyone know how to change that setting?
