I can't believe that is has been a month since I last posted! Jeez!! But I can tell you that I have been a busy beader....and all is done and at the show! A quick preview...I am quite proud of my "Hypseledoris bullocki laying eggs" neckalce. This is a one of a kind piece. I was making nudibranch pendants and this one was slightly off center, so I thought it would look better strung sideways....then the imagination took over.
I have also been experimenting with silver chain, which I think looks particularly good with this fish, encased with teal glass and silvered ivory shards, with fine silver accents. And of course, lots of big Swarovski crystals for sparkle. I have a few of these in different colors. (silver chains and designs vary slightly)
And last but not least....and one of my most proud accomplishments, was making clown trigger fish beads small enough to use for earrings! Now...these were not easy, and I only got 3 pairs made. But I will be taking orders for these at the show, or you can email me and I will tell you more details.
And yet more exciting news, I will be showing a collection of (and selling!) amazingly beautiful jewelry from one of my favorite designers, Rickie Voges of Rickie Voges Designs. She makes bracelets and necklaces that always include lampwork beads and quite often have an ocean theme. Each piece is very unique. Check out her work here.
I will be in booth #523....but just look for the pink dolphin balloon in the sky! For more info, go to SCUBA SHOW. I hope to see you this weekend.
