I've fallen for this beauty- simply elegant! I metal smithed my barrel beads with the stick and stone theme. Then I created some art glass beads with my favorite silver glass. It's got a amber rose blu metalic shine which almost looks like they are metal beads- Don't be fooled they are glass. The overall effect looks something like a platium metal- very elegant but contemporary also. The art glass beads are Amber Blue glazed glass which have been sterling silver capped ends and cored. My sweet daughter Brie helped me with the hand metal smithed guitar clasp with wildflower PMC charms. AB Swaroski crystals dangles with sterling silver balls. Truely a treasure in this piece. The size is adjustable from 8-9 inches long. So I'm thinking about putting it in the Eccles Art Auction in Feb. so if you want it snag it quickly or it may be off to support the community Art center.
