Gem-quality labradorite cabochon is the focal point in this elegant, sophisticated piece. It is surrounded by my borosilicate glass beads, freshwater pearls, labradorite stones, Japanese seed beads, Swarovski crystals, and backed by Sensuede.
Cabochon is Picasso marble hand carved by Dave Tobler. Porcelain bird by Laura Mears has been antiqued. Strap is Russian netting and staircase spiral stitches. This intricate piece includes Swarovski crystals, Japanese seed beads, a borosilicate glass bead, Picasso marble bead, and a ball & socket clasp. Backed by Utrasuede®.
Inspired by the Burmese temples with their pagodas and geometric lines. The centerpiece is moss agate with supporting actors of sliced borosilicate glass beads. A beaded liquid silver bar tops this stunning piece. A fringe of vintage German glass drapes delicately down in front. This necklace was featured in Bead and Button Magazine in June 2009.
Crystals and adventurine cabochons are playfully surrounded by seed beads and freeform peyote stitch straps.
Centerpiece cabochon is Regency Rose quartz. The piece above it is petrified palm wood. Both pieces are surrounded by seed beads, borosilicate glass and Swarovski crystals. The straps are seed beads woven into swirling spirals.
