Not only does it put a smile on your face, it also makes it far easier to take photos that do justice to beautiful handmade lampwork glass beads! I managed to catch the sun to help me take some photos of a couple of bracelets I made last week! I hope you like them as much as I do!
a mix of sterling silver, greek ceramic, rose quartz and glass lampwork beads made by Trudi Doherty
a mix of sterling silver, glass, Greek ceramic, freshwater pearls and glass lampwork beads
by Trudi Doherty, Sue Reynolds and Angela Gensch.
this last one is a single strand necklace
It's really simple with just clear, colourless glass
interspersed with freshwater pearls and tiny sterling silver beads
A friend of mine asked me to make a purple set for them to give as a present. Here is what I came up with (the colour in the photos is a little distorted due to my terrible photography 'skills') :
I usually make things that are very symmetrical and ordered so it was nice to make something a bit different. I have such a huge stash of beads of all different shapes, sizes and colours. I think I might get to work on a few more items similiar to these! What do you think?
