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

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







Basket Weave | Glass Bead Focal


I’m trying to make smaller focals… A struggle for a gigantic bead lover like me. ;0)

Rectangular bead, brown basket weave base with lavender flowers and vine cane design. Slightly different on both sides. 20 mm hole to hole x 15mm x 10 mm thick. $4.00





Water Lily Glass Bead Art Necklace

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
