Under the Sea

I've been working on lots on new pieces here lately and finally managed to take pictures of a few. Here's my most recent favorite. I met Sherrie Venghaus, the lampwork artist who made this center focal, at the St. Augustine show I did back in March. She was one of the few bright spots! I bought several beads from her and am just now getting around to doing something with them. I wore this piece the other day and got loads of compliments. It was pretty hard to photograph, so it's even prettier in person! Initially I had planned to use these beads in my Showstopper style pieces, but this bead is so magnificient on its own, I decided to keep it a little more simple by accenting it with just a few aqua quartz briolettes, a Swarovski crystal starfish and some Swarovski crystal rondelles. I love the way it came out! I'll have it listed on the website sometime this week.
