In my last post, I did a quick design of a necklace, doing the layout in Photoshop. Last night I made the beads. Although not difficult they did take quite a bit of time because I was extra meticulous with the shaping. I felt that since they were only one color, the shape was the key.
Here they are, looking a little prettier – all cleaned.
I made them into components for the necklace. I added little “spaceship” sterling silver spacers. I used 18 gauge wire; I’m not used to that thickness especially since I have not done any wire work for a while.
I didn’t have any jumprings, so I decided to make some.
That is all I have for today. I’m off to the torch to make the focal bead.
I’m Rosemarie Hanus and I usually just make glass lampwork beads (not the jewelry) in my Bath Township, Ohio studio. Check out my stores to see what I usually do – links in sidebar.
