Just listed in my Shop – lively vibrant colours and contrasts with blown hollows!
The main beads are blown hollow glass beads. Hollow glass beads are lighter and the transparent hollows refract and reflect the light off the inner and outer surfaces to add life and sparkle. The satin black hollows have been sandblasted to create a gorgeous contrast in texture.
The necklace also has long tube beads and glass rings over the tube beads and spacers. The main beads are separated with small glass pea beads and seed beads so that the necklace is flexible and supple, so it sits just so and feels great when you wear it.
The matching earrings have forest green and etched satin black beads hanging form sterling silver ear hooks.

Forest greeen and satin black earrings
These earrings match the forest green and tangerine necklace. The beads are of transparent forest green glass and etched satin black glass. The earrings are on Sterling Silver ear hocks and findings.
I have a long term love affair with turquoise and silver – in fact it was my love of turquoise and silver that got me into this jewellery making business – long story!
These two pieces are a blast from the past. I was cleaning out bits and bobs when I came across a stash of turquoise and silver – enough for these two lovelies!
Encased beads and pendants was the theme in the December 2016 edition of Soda Lime Times.
This is one of my favourite Sea Bed Series pendants – I always love to make these – and I think they look great!
In 2008, just a year after I started making glass, I was featured in the May issue of Beads Etc magazine. I was featured on the front cover (above), I had an artist’s profile feature and a project.
