Sculpted Glass Leaf Beads & NEW Bubble Crown Bead Pendants

At loooong last we have finally begun to enjoy some cooler weather in my neck of the woods – save for the past few days which have been back up in the high 80’s/low 90’s. But I can forgive these recent hot days because I know that has *got* to be the very last of the hot weather for a long time. Not to mention all the pretty colors of the trees which are none the wiser to it being too hot for Fall.

So, now that I’m back at the torch I have a new collection of beads to share:

NEW Handmade Encased Murrini Bead Necklaces & Pendant

My obsession – going strong… πŸ˜€Β  You’d think after a year and a half of being consumed with making encased murrini beads I’d be tired of them by now. But no – there are so many endless design possibilities that I don’t think I’ll ever get tired of this style bead. Occasionally I do venture out and do different things, but I always seem to come back to these. What’s a girl to do? πŸ˜‰

Encased Murrini Bead Pendants

I am loving these interchangeable bead pendants πŸ˜€ The are perfect for showcasing handmade lampwork by taking a bead from beautiful to wow! The best part is that you can mix and match your own beads on them to create a number of different looks just from one pendant.

This week I’ve added a couple new encasing murrini beads to Etsy, pairing two of them with an interchangeable bead pendant, along with one loose focal bead (which could be added to a bead pendant!) πŸ˜‰
