Goldfish Necklace | Crocheted Lampwork Jewelry

koi pond necklace by Holly's Folly

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

Sunny | Dichroic Glass Lentil Bead

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

Rio Ribbed Rounds| Glass Bead Set


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!

Pink on the Inside | Abstract Heart Glass Bead

The inside of this abstract heart shaped bead is created by multiple layers of glass… I was going for orangy pink… but I didn’t like the shape. As often happens with my beads…sometimes they just “want” to be hearts! I started messing with the shape and some of the silvered glass worked its way to the surface. In the end, I think it’s much more spectacular than I envisioned. Swirls of metallic glass with glorious pink peeking through… She’s a beauty!

Measures: 28 mm x 24 mm wide. – $12

Chakra Colors | Glass Bead Set


The colors of the chakra can be used for meditation or in yogic practices. It is believed that – by concentrating on a color corresponding to a specific body part, healing can be achieved. The colors and their representations in the body are:

Red = Base Chakra
Orange = Sacral Chakra
Yellow = Solar Plexis Chakra
Green = Heart Chakra
Pale Blue = Throat Chakra
Dark Blue = Third Eye Chakra
Amethyst = Crown Chakra

While these beads were made with meditative intent, they can also serve as just a happy rainbow of colors on your bracelet or necklace.

These 7 Big Hole Glass Beads are a basic donut shape and measure 5 mm hole to hole x 12 mm wide. $56.00for the set of made to order beads. The Pandora is not included.
