Lampwork glass chandelier necklace

Lampwork glass chandelier necklace

This handmade chandelier necklace is one of a kind!  It was born out of an abundance of lampwork glass beads and a spark of creativity :)

Four 10 x 5 mm cobalt blue borosilicate glass beads form a dramatic pendant with accents of Swarovski crystal and sterling silver.  The 4 mm crystals glimmer in a light sapphire satin color that beautifully complements the boro beads.

The pendant measures approximately 43 mm (1 5/8″) from the top of the sterling silver circle to the bottom of the longest sterling silver headpin.  It hangs from a 1.4 mm sterling silver double rope chain with a sterling silver spring ring clasp.

The lampwork beads are also handmade, though not by me :)

I loved designing this pendant because the lampwork beads are just beautiful.  They have great depth and amazing color.  Anyone who likes blue will undoubtedly be drawn to them.  Visit my Etsy shop to learn more about this necklace today!

Another new listing!

I’ve been trying (and hopefully succeeding!) to rev up my Etsy shop these past few weeks with new listings, updated photos, better descriptions, anything that will make my creations stand out in a sea of beautiful jewelry.  What do you think of my latest item?

Black & white crystal collar necklace

This elegant collar necklace is perfect for a formal occasion or special event.  I call it my “blizzard baby” in honor of its wintry color scheme and the wild snowstorm that raged outside during its construction!

Bold black 10 x 10 mm Swarovski crystal stairway beads are the focal points of this piece.  The stairway beads are accented by grey and clear Swarovski crystal bicones and sterling silver spacers.  Additional sterling silver beads and components complete the piece.  This multi strand necklace includes a sterling silver chain extender for adjusting its length from 16″ – 18″.  It closes with a sterling silver lobster claw clasp.

The classic black, white, and grey color scheme of this bib necklace coordinates easily with any outfit.  Wear it to a wedding, an anniversary party, a holiday function, anywhere you like.  No matter the season or the occasion, you will feel extra special with two strands of sterling silver and crystal sparkling delicately at your neck.

Even at its shortest length, this necklace is comfortable to wear.  Its two strands of beads lay flat against the skin and move easily with you.  With its multitude of crystals, this necklace does have some weight.  It is recommended to wear this piece at or just above the collarbone.

Bold black agate necklace

Bold black agate necklace

I bought this black agate pendant years ago at a bead show in central Massachusetts, and it took me a very long time to decide what to do with it.  I first tried to design an elaborate beaded necklace with black, white, and gray crystals to complement the natural colors of the stone itself, but that plan never really spoke to me.  I moved on to large round onyx beads for a chunky look, but that didn’t feel right either.  It just seemed like I was trying too hard.  I was so happy when I found an extra black rubber cord necklace in my stash of supplies.  The cord sets off the pendant perfectly without overpowering it.  This simple yet striking necklace is available for sale in my Etsy shop.

Turquoise, pearls, and crystals

Turquoise, pearl, and crystal jewelry set

This is the first jewelry design that I created and sold as a set.  Each piece features round howlite beads dyed in a rich turquoise color, cultured freshwater pearls, Swarovski crystals, and sterling silver beads.  My friend Connie snapped it up before anyone else even had a chance to see it!

Lampwork glass beads

Lampwork glass beads

Several years ago, I met a ski instructor whose sister made lampwork glass beads in her home studio and sold them to local boutiques in upstate New York.  When she was ready to move on to other creative endeavors, she offered up her remaining beads to me for use in my own jewelry projects.  This is the jewelry set that I made for her to thank her for her generosity.
