Poppy Reef is an intricately beaded necklace created on a braided fiber base for support and strength. The beautiful hand sculpted glass beads are made from an odd lot of glass called Poppy. When glass makers create a new color, they sell it as an odd lot to test the customer reaction. This one was a beautiful odd batch, but unfortunately, the newer versions are not as dark and rich as this first run. Which also make this piece more valuable and one of a kind!
Delicas, seed beads, fresh water pearls, coral pieces, vintage glass flower beads, Bali silver charms and lampwork beads are all sewn onto the fiber base, finished with ivory flameworked bead caps and a gorgeous sterling silver moon shell clasp.
