I thought I'd share some eye candy with you. I love love love detail, colour, texture and maybe this can be seen in my work. I've collected beads, pendants, charms and various findings to be able to create pieces of jewellery that I find pleasing.
The above necklace is a perfect example of this. I've had the smooth round Kyanite beads for over a decade, the same is true of the fine silver turtle charm I've used as a pendant. It was only more recently that I purchased the lampwork beads, which I feel match the Kyanite perfectly.
These ancient looking lampwork beads were created with linear trails as inspired by the great civilizations of the past and were aged artifically using various techniques. I've teamed them up with these fair trade Karen Hill Tribe fine silver sun print beads and I think the combination works well.
Here I've used Karen Hill Tribe fine silver bead caps (all the fine silver featured in this blog post is fair trade) and lovely Aquamarine beads, detail meets smooth and simple, I like the result =)
