GOLDFISH NECKLACE. The crocheted necklace is made of both metallic core and matte e-beads, 6 mm Swarovski crystals, Size 8 orange beads, and Czech pressed glass floral and leaf beads. All were hand strung to satisfy my strange brain’s desire for “randomness” and crocheted on heavy cotton cord. Bali bead caps and sterling toggle clasp round out the basic necklace. I should mention I crocheted this with a 3 beads per round so this is much smaller diameter piece than I’ve made in the past.
The tassel is made on 19 strand beading wire woven through the necklace and crimped. The three art beads were worked in randomly and all ends were crimped for finishing. $189.00
Bellflowers in Blue 6 flowers + 3 leaves on bronze tone copper wire 3″27.00
A collection of some glass beads from myself and from a few other artists strung with Swarovski crystals in blue and AB, Bali and sterling. This is generous sized bracelet measuing 8.5″ between the clasps. My own wrist is exactly 7″ and this bracelet drapes halfway over my palm and can be slid off without opening the toggle. $79

I actually made this for me… thinking it would be a nice focal for a kumihimo necklace. After months of looking at it in my bead bowl, it’s time to let it go… 37 mm hole to hole x 40 mm (1.5″) This is a nice LARGE bead. Lots of silver rich glasses, reduced and heavily encased to capture that shine and mother-of-pearl look on both sides. A swath of crinkle dichroic is down the center and a colorful sunflower wrapped around one side, blue aventurine was used for the spiral. Spirals are a symbol of the circle of life or of ‘home” and are often featured in my work. $38.00
This set of Rio Party color beads is now MADE TO ORDER. A color reaction between a rare, no-longer-made glass and two more common highly reactive glasses. There is no predicting how the colors will develop but a riot is pretty much guaranteed! You will find baby blue, purple, lavender, burnt orange, golden yellow and teal in these. I still have a few vials of the precious glass left but when it’s gone… The party will be over!
The five bead set is a smidge under 3″ long. The smaller pair are about 3/8″ and the larger three are around a 1/2″. $27.50 As always you will receive a photo of your actual beads before mailing!
