Monkey Around

About this design:

This is a reworked design for my co-worker, Megan. She was given a necklace of the Monkey Lampwork beads and Cat's Eye beads, very simple and too short for her to wear. I redesigned it so it would have more character, and added a pair of earrings. Another one she loves.


Lampwork beads, Cat's Eye beads, Czech Glass beads, Seed beads, Gold-plated spacers and findings

    Cute! That kid’s song about ‘too many monkeys jumping on the bed’ popped into my head… in this case, TWO fell off, and became earrings!

    The way you re-worked this is great. I’m glad that Megan was able to call on you to make it work better for her.
