Handmade Lampwork Bead Necklace Blue Glass Beaded Fringe Swarovski
Once In a Blu Moon Lampwork Glass Beaded Necklace
This multi-strand necklace features the wonderful lampwork prowess of Jacqueline Maruri. The vivid blues of the center draws you into her gorgeous handmade beads. This bead is resplendent in many different blue hues. In order to compliment the pretty blues, I added strands of blue and peacock teal green iridescent Czech seed beads to give the necklace a lot of flash and movement.
In between the seed beads, I have dressed this up with 6mm Opal Swarovski crystals and 4mm Capri blue Swarovski crystals. Peacock blue pearls are used to give the strands more variety. Gold plated spacers and toggle clasp give the necklace the finishing touches. The cones that are used to thread the necklace through sit behind the neck.
The necklace is a nice matinee length of 22 inches, which does not include the pendant and the fringed bottom. Those two pieces add three more inches to the overall necklace.
This necklace is a one of a kind and has been hand sewn and woven by myself. There will never be another one and you will most definitely own a work of art.
I adore the lovely lampwork beads of Jacki Maruri and have many of her original focal beads that are awaiting future projects. Her talented torch uses a lot of playful color and design making her beads quite popular with jewelry designers.
