Crazy For Dots – Lampwork Glass Beads

When not consumed with making encased murrini beads over the past year, I’ve been working to perfect my pulled dot beads. Thanks to a new tutorial I recently purchased I have ‘connected the dots’ (ha! :D), had a light bulb moment, and at last this technique finally clicked for me. Now, I have a new obsession… 😉

NEW Mixed Media Lampwork Jewelry

I love the look of mixed media jewelry designs that combine earthy natural elements with more refined components. Something about the contrast between the rustic and refined is such a unique look!

I created these new glass bead pendants with hand made natural brass bead caps, pairing them with a natural brass ball chain necklace for that ‘industrial’ feel.
