HUGE bead set of thin-walled hollows and disks. Coveted Czech denim blue paired with olive green glass always pleases. This set measures 13"L as strung... with 1/16" mandrel holes.
Little starter sets for your late summer gardens... (ahem, creations...) Sometimes this is just enough. A stunner sized hollow with flanking disks of color... right about a 2" grouping...for a scaled down price and presence. Plus this gives me reason to make MORE!!
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.
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 clear cased with a deep rich purple. Sometimes there is a need to veil the darker colors over clear to allow the light to penetrate and release the colors.
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.
OK. When I talk about some of my sets taking on a personality or just choosing their name themselves? This is one of them. It has color, drama and a presence. OH Man... such a beautiful presence. I think sets such as this is why I shy from wearing patterns... if you wore this - you need a neutral backdrop to allow it to shine. This set features three glorious main hollows - thin walled and balanced beautifully... with nicely pillowed ends (holes 1/16" mandrel), it's punctuated with tall thin disks of complimentary colors - allowing these hollows to be slightly raised from the surface - diminishing contact with skin - funny how easily it rolls on these disks - and after the glass warms to body temp - becomes rather effortless to wear. I love the presence of these larger hollows/disk sets... so beautiful and lightweight! This set measures 10"L and is truly a showstopper!
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.
Peachy, pale amethyst and medium amethyst hollows and disks... sweet pairings. Please refer to image above for scale information... the strand measures 12 1/8"L as strung. Bead holes
Cabochon styled pendant - featuring a jet black base (frame) with a center of silvered glass. Droplets of clear amplify the various levels of sheen and metallic blue that have been coaxed out of the glass. The pendant measures 38mm in diameter and has a sterling silver bail for hanging OR cording can easily be threaded through. *the snake chain is just a prop for the photo and is not included.
I hold onto beads... those of you who know me well - know that's all too true. I've had these for a few years... and think they finally deserve a home with someone who will do something amazing with them! A mix of many of many of my favorite looks - in a very happily harmonious mix. Largest bead has a larger hole - so can slide over E size beads. Overall, lampwork in this set measures 4" L
Softly - $100
More subtle colors here - a soothing set of beads in nicely harmonious colors. This set measures " long all beads have 1/16"mandrel holes.
Nicely neutral (like Switzerland)... but with an added purple punch. Tabular ovals shaped beads - 11 1/4" of lampwork pretties... it's sort of the simplest form of sleek. 1/16" mandrel holes. Black, Cobblestone, Purple , and Ivory.
I actually got distracted listing this, because it reminds me of a so much of a boquet of flowers. Lovely airy hollows, similar painterly disks and a wingspread of 13 1/2". oh so pretty.
