YOJ Week 20, 21 and 22
Coral Reef or Beach Scene was the theme for week 20 and this is what I came up with. A coral floral! alternating with coral crystal beads....I think these stones are fossil beads and were wire wrapped in sterling silver....
Week 21 Ocean Deep, Big Blue and these lampwork beads that I made feel very much like the ocean. The focal pendant is
PMC fine silver that I call a "fragment" with a bit of text and the texture with its swirls add to the wave feeling. The lampwork alterntes with blue/green beads and a SS butterfly and sunface.
Week 22 Water to Drink was the theme and the dichroic cabachon bezel set in sterling silver is delicious. The depth of the glass sparkles. The rope is hand crocheted seed beads with Bali SS end caps and venetian glass hearts.....
