Pretty Bubbles


About this design:

I'd never tried bubbly lampwork beads before. They seemed sort of odd, and yet the colors inside were so pretty--lavender, green and metallic gold. Though this isn't a winter piece, maybe the rock crystal counts as ice? Maybe??

Components:

Grace lampwork rondelles, ametrine, Cape amethyst, rock crystal,Czech glass, seed beads, antique gold aligners and clasp.

    It may be considered a summery piece but I see it as a necklace that could be worn with any basic black dress or any appropriate color depending on the design whether for winter or spring.

    Feels like spring to me, too, but it’s so sparkly, there’s a bit of winter in it.

    I think it could be a winter piece because of the glassy/icy appearance. Wear it with dark amethyst or gold or even dark green. Love it!

    Laud this is gorgeous! It feels wintery to me because of the purples but I can see the Spring side too! Either way it’s a GORGEOUS piece! :D

    Fabulously glittery! I don’t think it screams a particular season at all. I would wear this now with a deep purple top and in the spring/summer with a light green one. A beautiful, cheerful piece for whatever the season.

    Gorgeous necklace. It made me think “springtime garden” right away. I’d wear it any time of year though. The lampwork bead is fab!

    The lampwork is a graduated set. I’d thought to keep the pieces closer together, but it ended up spaced farther apart. It’s really glittery–pictures don’t quite catch that.

    I think this piece could be worn anytime with the right outfit. It speaks softness to me. Great work.

    I love this design. Makes me long for spring. The little Czech glass leaves make the piece.
