some beads

This necklace looks so much better in real life, both because it is in focus and you can see the wave pattern on the focal and because the frosted glass just doesn't hold the light the way it does in real life. The blue is Effetre cobalt and the green is CIM peacock green, etched. There was a color interaction you can't see in this photo on the focal. In the center of the stringer a silvery line formed when I melted the cobalt in. I think it looks a little like white caps.

Here is a necklace I made from powder pink with light ivory and goldstone stringer. This glass was really fun to strike, and I don't think it went very well on the small beads. The color of the focal was a surprise but more what I was expecting all along. The teapot earrings are Effetre white, cobalt stringer and commercial pewter bead caps.
