More necklaces

These two necklaces are made with Rebecca Weddell lamp work beads.  If you’ve never watched lampworking before you’re missing out.  Basically you have a torch flame, rods of glass and a mandrel (which forms the hole of the bead).  You melt the glass in the flame on to the mandrel.  Maybe it’s the child in me but I think it’s like magic!  J

The orange and purple combo is very me because it’s a bit wacky and out of the ordinary.  I combined the beads with Swarovski crystals.

I finished the back of the necklace with a little drop of crystals which look great from behind if you have your hair up (or short hair!)

The second one is a bit subtle for me, it does have bright colours but in small doses.  I normally go for lots of bright colours in big doses!  I combined them with clear iridescent seed beads and just strung them on some tiger tail.  Simples.

Thanks for popping by!
