On Friday I found out that the Toronto Jewellery Gem and Mineral Show was going to be held just 10 minutes walk from where I live. Heaven! Went in Saturday and fell for some gorgeous glass, lampwork beads that one designer was selling. One set was cranberry glass and the other was a purple/green lampwork, slightly floral looking. Immediately thought the purple/green beads would look fabulous with some dark amethyst beads. Went home and starting creating!
Two bracelets were created from the cranberry glass beads, both with sterling silver. One is a byzantine weave and the other I matched the beads with tiny stamped barrel beads, and I mean tiny!
The other bracelet was the purple/green lampwork beads which did indeed look amazing with amethyst beads, added a bit of sterling silver for some accent and voila, bling!
