This exuberant necklace was created around a set of 18mm artisan lampwork beads that are intense with shades of purple, fuchsia, pink. rose, blue and turquoise. Adding complementary beads, I attempted to emphasize the purple and fuchsia tones. You'll find smaller lampwork beads from other artisans, Swarovski crystals, Sterling silver beads and spacers, and a rather fancy and substantial chain to which all the elements were hand wired using 20 gauge sterling wire.
Because it seemed like such a joyful piece, and because I couldn't control myself, I added a number of sterling charms: little hearts and flowers and some tiny gemstone dangles.
This necklace is approximately 39 inches long.
