Luscious Lampwork!

The ultra fabulous glass beads by artist Jane Perala, are always a joy to use in my creations! Her handmade  beads are beautifully made and have amazing depth...the camera just cannot capture how truly beautiful they really are! Lampwork glass beads are made one at a time, by melting rods of colored glass with a torch. Each one is an individual work of art! Jane is a Canadian lampwork bead artist, from one of my favorite places ....Vancouver Island, British Columbia.

Here is what I made with some of Janes gorgeous beads:
Weekend Getaway #41, is a  multi strand necklace that features two of Janes glass beads, as well as a vintage button and faux pearls, a cool brass vintage number tag, abalone shell, amethyst, and an agate stone pendant .

 Spring Fling, is a  charm style bracelet designed with four marvelous water colored beads, several handcrafted sterling silver charms from Thailand, Bali silver, vintage beads and Swarovski pearls.

Ooooh, I like the close-up of the beads. I never saw them up close before--they are so cool!!!

I know what you mean about not being able to capture the beauty of them. I LOVE lamp work beads and I don't even make jewelry! It's really tricky to capture how the light affects them.

Anyway, I just love how you used them- I went to your etsy shop to mark spring fling as a favorite:)
