Glass Magic

A little (2.54cm, 1inch) hand made glass bead representing a sea shell. 
I am going to make it into a necklace one day.

Click the pic to enlarge, it has some very interesting reflections in it, including the light I illuminated it with, and me!

  25. The shell is exquisite! It will make a beautiful necklace one day, but for now it makes a lovely little piece of art all by itself.

  27. I think this piece seems a MURANO very common in Italy...
    If you do that collar think about using a tire of crude leather, it makes all the difference...

    ReplyDelete
  29. So gorgeous... we used to see lots of seashell jewelry, when we lived in Phuket. Can't wait till you finish the necklace ;-)

    BTW regarding "Under the Blood Red Sky", I couldn't stop my hubby from humming the U2 song all weekend!

  33. It's obviously smaller than it looks - it reminds me of a clenched fist. It's very pretty!
