Frog Lampwork Sterling Silver Necklace


About this design:

I have had these frog lampwork beads for quite some time - just didn't know what to do with them. Then I had an epiphany!
I pictured this frog perched on a leaf so I made it happen!

This was a fun piece to create as I find these frog beads whimsical and fun.

This necklace is for sale in my shop.

Components:

Deep red and green frog lampwork barrel beads, Czech antique red picasso beads, green jasper beads, small green antiqued beads and small deep red matte glass beads. The leaves are handmade with sterling silver wire that I hammered. The frog is wired on to the large leaf to look like he is resting on it. I made a smaller leaf for the clasp.

    This may be whimsical but it is also quite beautiful. I like the way you combined the frog beads with the red picasso and the green jasper. Wonderful!

    Frogs??? Mine were listed as lizards! I’m a lizard collector(but not live ones)! There are frogs too, I bought them to make a pendant for my frog lover daughter! They also have turtles for those turtle lovers!!! Anyway, very unique design! I like it.

    You know this is a cute whimsical piece, but from a distance the color combinations is great. I couldn’t tell the cute little froggies were there at first. I love this one. The colors are beautiful together. I am an antique lover so I really appreciate the tiny green beads and the red large beads. Two of my favorite colors.

    Thanks to everyone for your kind comments.

    Chippy Chick – I thought these frogs looked like lizards at first but no tails. Had to check my invoice again and they list them as frogs! Could be lizards that lost their tails?

    Love the froggies. Did you design the leaf yourself? Did you use a jig? Did you know you were so talented? FAVE
