The First ‘Noel’ – New Lampwork Bead Collections

With the holidays fast approaching I wanted to do a set of beads with lots of sparkle and shine…

NoelThe result is ‘Noel’ which pairs both transparent Rubino Oro glass (pink gold) with a warm sage green. A twist on the traditional Christmas colors of bright red and green.

To that I added dichroic glass, silver glass, 23K gold leaf, sparkly goldstone, cubic zirconia, handmade murrini and more!

These beads are so much prettier in person, especially in direct sunlight!

“NOEL” – available till Sunday on eBay.

This next collection was inspired by a recent vacation  – I wanted to recreate the liquid blue colors of tropical water with a punch of color for contrast. The result is a nice blend of turquoise and transparent aqua blue with rich coral and subtle black outlined details.

I love the look of scrolls and raised flowers – to me these two design elements have an antique yet timeless feel to them.

For this set I used sparkly blue aventurine stringers for the scrollwork and clear encased Davinci silver glass for the 3 petal flowers. The base is a yummy combination of ivory and transparent light toffee colored glass.

Until next time…
