These first two are made from
kits that my beading buddy Rayney King designed and sold on ebay.
Check out her great beads on ebay.
This is a multi shaded purple and the scan does not do it justice.
Hematite Dutch Spiral
My first original Dutch Spiral
It is difficult to see in the scan but the loops are made up of randomly place different shades of blue and hematite beads, with a large center bead either matte blue or blue green stone and each loop ends in a blue bulge. The peyote is done in blue delicas and two different shades of blue 11 hex's.
This is my latest spiral, using twisted gold bugles, with loops made of randomly placed beads, it is accented with amber beads and includes a lampwork bead by Lynne Tompkins. I have scanned both sides of the choker because Lynne's bead looks so different on each side it's like having two necklaces in one.
You can find more of Lynne's beautiful beads at
Garnets and Pearls
Here is another spiral using
another of Lynne's lampwork beads. This one is made out of ruby red 12
cuts and 11 seed beads, bugles with garnets and fresh water pearls.
This is a close up of the
lampwork bead showing the fresh water pearls running through the bead.
Garnet and Lampwork Spiral
This spiral has garnets incorporated
into the loops, a set of Lynne's lampwork beads, garnets for the strap
and the clasp is sterling silver with garnets.
love to hear from you!!!
