Labor intensive labor of love. Can you say I have a thing about disks? 50 of them FIFTY? small graduated ones in clear - others in denim and olive... plus three showstopping thin walled hollow beads - this is what I often call a SNW set. Meaning - string and wear... and you're good to go! 11"L as strung - just beautiful. : )
A combination of hollows and slumped petals in Olive, Glassdaddy Purple and light amber... a fresh set - and essentially one that can be threaded onto stringing material and worn! Lovely.
Simple & stunning... one large Denim blue hollow - flanked by blushing peachy/pink slumped petal beads... all other beads are solid, save the focal.
I love this glass. It's a very sweet apricot with a hint of pink. It etches beautifully and also telegraphs the color nicely to the edges of disks and other shapes.
I've combined it with the disks I have typically used in other sets - but added these petal cap beads to hug the focal and drape down over the other key players in this set... it's a very feminine set with a decidedly delicate feel. Could easily be threaded onto stringing material and add a clasp and be done! SNW (string N wear material!).
While it oddly looks grey here - this is the same denim blue as shown below... hmmm. Paired with a beautiful bottle green that telegraphs the color to edges of the disks. : )
A delicate variation to the normal hollows/disks set - addition of a delicate 'cap' in a slumped three-petal shaped design. Five nice hollows, with ten accent making thin disks, a pair of the petal caps and the balance in rounds of denim glass. Large hollows have appx 3/32" mandrel holes, while rounds have 1/16" holes.
A delicate variation to the normal hollows/disks set - addition of a delicate 'cap' in a slumped three-petal shaped design. Nice focal hollow, two pair of carved rounds, three pair spacers, Two pair of the petal cap beads. Beads have 1/16" holes.
Leaning towards a more soft color grouping as parts of the country are heading into Fall... Love the soft feel of this set and the strong visual impression it leaves. This set measures 11 3/4" in length.
Another "ham" for the camera.... gosh - they love to be photographed! This hollow and disk set measures 11" long as shown, with 1/16" mandrel holes. 5 hollows, and 5/8", 1/2", & 3/8" dia beads.
One more pop of bright color, as sometimes the neutral backdrop of a certain outfit can handle the mighty pulse of a stunning necklace. Love it!! This set measures 11 1/2" in length.
Fun fiesta of colored disks, if you love the casual fun of color - but don't necessarily like hollow beads... this myriad of colors and sizes give that fun you crave - but take it down a notch. The disks roll easily over your skin - making them 'cool' summer jewelry! Strand length is 9" long as shown. 3/8" amber rounds, 5/8" pale peach rounds and a myriad of colorful disks. 1/16" mandrel holes.
Sometimes a little pop of color is just what we need. These earrings are 5/8" diameter rounds of medium amethyst and a lighter version of the same color . Wired onto handmade headpins and suspended from handmade 20ga square Sterling Silver ear wires. These have a drop of 1 3/4" from your earlobe.
