Encased Murrini Coral Reef Glass Beads – NEW!

Everyone knows how much I love murrini – I love making them, and I love using them a lot in my lampwork bead designs. I even wrote a tutorial on how to make beautiful murrini!

Something I have been working on perfecting for the past year has been encasing murrini beneath a layer of crystal clear glass so that it resembles an underwater ocean scene. It started with my pier beads and has evolved into my new coral reef series beads which are more complex with many different elements in the design.

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.
