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
Kissy Fishy -This guy makes me laugh! Many shades of purple in a fish! My wacky sense of humor yet again! I used a large oval mandrel to make the body of the fish in dark purple. Fins are lavender and lips are dark purple. Hanging from one of Jamn Glass’ gorgeous watercolor ribbons. Bead is 1.9″ tall x 2″ wide. Give ‘im a kish already! $23
This is a really stunning, eye-catching necklace! It was one of my Art Bead Scene entries last year and you can read about it here. I often keep things that took me considerable time and effort just to admire them. I often don’t feel I’m “ready” to part with them but… a girl has to make a living.
In addition to the water lily focal and lily pads – made by me, this necklace features a variety of green, pink, purple and blue handmade lampwork beads by a number of other artists. There are almost 100 genuine Swarovski crystals and a smattering of Bali silver and E beads. This piece was inspired by the painting Water Lilies by Monet. The perfect gift for a woman who loves fun, unique jewelry and art! $145.00
