Lucky it's Ornament Thursday!

It's Ornament Thursday whose February theme is Lucky. Lucky for me I designed the versatile Lucky Knots and Lampwork necklace! My own flameworked glass beads are the foundation and the Chinese "lucky" or snake knots add texture. The design can be used to create different looks with the same basic technique - here are a few:

OR combine the knotting with wire work - handmade ball headpins and a hand formed "S" clasp to create a unique pendant with a flameworked reactive blue spiral. A punch of contrasting color and zing - a modern necklace full of personality!

Want to create a Lucky Knot and Lampwork Necklace for yourself? I wrote a tutorial in two parts, Part One here and Part Two on Art Bead Scene! Now for the OT Girls Fabulous Link list!
