I was in the jewelry making mood apparently. Since the first necklace turned out much to my satisfaction, I decided to make a second – this one is simply named Sunset. I imagine that I needed to prove to myself that it wasn’t just a happy accident. The glass lampwork focal bead is more of the usual kind of bead that I make, so at least that part went fast!
I took the two necklaces to be exhibited at an art show. It is just the pieces that are displayed, with no accompanying description – unfortunately it seems. As I was checking them in, I was asked where I found all of the matching beads. Of course I made them, but how is someone looking at the piece to know this? I kind of want them to know!
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.
