This is also a custom order from a friend of mine over in Canada.
Another amazing lampwork bead by Sharon Reynolds. This bead measures a whopping 3.5cm by 1cm (approx). I've teamed it with a selection of Bali beads, some cream beads which look like ivory but are made from glass and some matt black seed beads and sterling silver. This is one awesome necklace which has to be seen in real life to appreciate its beauty.
I bought a kit for a Victorian Ruffle Cuff and while I was making the cuff I had this image of a brooch in a similar style. I didn't know how it would turn out but took the plunge and went for it as sometimes what I can see in my minds eye isn't always what turns out in real life. So you can imagine how pleased I was that what I had envisoned I had infront of me. I think I will try this in another colour scheme and see how that turns out.............so watch this space for more beaded brooches.
