As some of you have read on an earlier post, it was my youngest daughter's 21st birthday just recently.
As part of her gift from me, I decided to make her a glass (lampwork) bead necklace, made with ivory and black short bicones.
Laura had seen a similar necklace that I had purchased in Italy and mentioned she liked it.
I was a little wary of emulating the look, but decided that it was different enough in colour choice, clasp selection etc to still give it a go.
I used a brass tool to help shape the beads, thanks for that, Peter.
The black was easy to manage however the dark ivory glass was a little more difficult due to it's sensitivity to heat . A very light touch was needed to shape the ivory bicones.
Necklace in the making
I used a beautiful box clasp with a dark grey stone which matched the transparent grey spacers
at the ends.

Hope you are all enjoying your day,
