The above focals have just been listed on Facebook Lampwork Bead Market. Thanks for looking!
Here is my most recent bracelet. It is a sterling silver cuff, etched with spring flowers, and accented with three small amethyst stones. One edge is straight and refined, and the other is melted, pounded and finished with a darker patina to emphasize the organic element. The patina has hints of blues and magentas, which I could not capture in the photograph. I am going to further explore this "a little hard and a little soft" style.
I am going to try to make it to the torch this weekend and see if I remember how to make beads :)
Have a great weekend, and as always, thanks for looking!
