Puddingstone Necklace


About this design:

I've held onto this gorgeous lamp work bead for far too long. The artist called it Puddingstone which I think is hilarious and fitting.
Finally decided what to do with it this morning.

Components:

Lampwork focal, painted (dyed) quartzite nuggets, opaque glass bead, and gunmetal findings.

    Gorgeous, like Deb said :) ! At first quick glance, I thought the lampwork was a real ‘puddingstone’ cabochon made from one of the actual conglomerate rock which bears that name!

    See you learn something all the time here at LB!! I had never heard of Puddingstone before. I thought the artist just made it up. Turns out it’s a real stone…here’s an image.
