This necklace, bracelet and earring set (earrings not shown) is made of some gorgeous handmade lampwork beads in colors I adore! I followed a simple beaded pattern with sterling silver and Czech bead accents because I wanted to enjoy the random colors encased within each glass bead. I love the way light is captured in the outer layer of clear glass making the inner colors seem to just come alive! Someday... I will learn to make these beads myself. :)
Many of my "growing up" years were spent on the west coast beaches of Oceanside in San Diego County, CA and I love all beachy things (especially seashells). Now I live in New Mexico, (lots of sand, but no ocean). I totally love creating with color! I'm married to the best guy ever and I am a mom to 3 really great boys who are quickly growing into superb young men right before my very eyes!
