I love lamp work and all the wonders of glass but stones, wood, leathers and metals all jive so well together in such creative ways. These necklaces have an earthy feel and bring in some rich colors and textures. Each material has so much to offer and it's fun to see them all hang out together on these fun and casual necklaces. The first piece has three, mini, lamp work beads that were rolled in frit. The frit was then only slightly melted into the body of the bead to leave the surface a bit bumpy and textured. The second piece also has a trio of lamp work but is a simple cream stack dangle.
