Autumn Harvest with a hint of green necklace
As promised, the first necklace in my Autumn collection. I wanted to have the lampwork bead as the focus of the necklace with its swirls invoking the image of blowing leaves on a crisp October morning. I wanted to emphasis its golden, red, and orange hues. The red agate donuts separate the piece in distinct sections and add an interesting focal point. The flat oval (golden quartzite), round (red agate), and twisting oval (red aventurine) shapes visually compliment the striking colors of the beads. Finishing touches were the antiqued copper crimp beads and copper s-shaped clasp.
18" long with the lampwork bead laying at 9". $23.
