I love lampwork, melting glass, open flame, and the creative process makes spending time on the torch magical. Recently I have focused on putting the bowls and jars of beads to good use.
My studio buddy, Kathleen, was tasked with making me a set of beads. So she did her organic frit tubes. They were colorful with interesting patterns so I went crazy and made this beautiful blue green set. "Kitchen sink" for all the places I pulled stray beads to include in it.
This necklace just happened. I made the focal and decided it needed similar beads. So I made two smaller but felt that wasn't enough so I made the flying saucer beads to set the focal up. It clasps in the back.
