Busy beading beside the sea

Well the Studio still needs some work and more things at home to bring in but I am fast approaching the time when I can just grab my handbag and go to work.  This week i went through my UFO box (Unfinished Objects) and managed to complete one or two, although several pieces just got cut up and returned to the bead drawer.

Lampwork focal and Preciosa seed bead chain necklace

Some of you will remember this from erm 2013??? – the lampwork focal bead is by the very talented Punky Puppy Beads . I had already beaded the bronze tubes which form the back of the necklace but I just couldn’t decide what to team with the lampwork bead- I hope you agree these vintage faux ivory beads show it off well.

And of course with spring around the corner my thoughts went to daisies….

The edge of the petals are the palest pink and the centre of the flower is Aragonite. I also tried some Sunflowers…

I plan to do some buttercup  and dandelion ones next week- do you have a favourite flower?

PS the necklace is £48 and the earrings on sterling silver earwires are £20.
