About this design:

I was really attracted to the sparkle in these beads even though they aren't a style I would usually choose, but then I didn't know what to do with them. This is what I ended up with.


Luna Venetian Glass beads, various findings.

    I know what you mean about the Luna beads. I had a focal that kept defying any attempt to use it. This design is perfect. To me, it looks like ancient jewelry–intricate, elegant and beautiful.

    These look awesome! I think the use of different metal color findings, was your perfect solution on figuring out what to do with them.

    I see both silver and copper in the bead, so I’m glad you used them both in your design. Perfect!

    Thanks for the encouragement! Especially since I bought these in a couple of colors!! :-/
    Laud-I have a pendant too (only one, thank goodness!) that I’ve been playing with but had to put aside because it wasn’t working the way I envisioned at all!
