More IS More

I've been checking out necklaces lately at Kohl's, Etsy and Anthropologie. I'm smitten with the necklaces full of large and small pearls. I kept thinking why not make one with the orphan lampwork beads I have? Each time I go to the torch to make glass beads, I make single colored beads to go with whatever multi colored beads I end up making. Well, I have a whole slew of single colored beads and they are just right to combine with the shell pearls I picked up in New York City last Thanksgiving.

I just love this look - it reminds me of the saying, More is Less but here More is More. This more is simply beautiful and is up at my Art Fire Shop.

That is gorgeous. It's like you captured a string of bubbles on a chain.

Normally I am a 'less is more' kind of person, but I'm liking the fuller pieces I see in magazines and stores. Your necklace is beautiful!

By the way, if you ever need a home for your extre beads just send the little lovlies my way and I'll take good care of them....

Cindy, this is a knock-out! The colors, the design, all of it! I bet you don't want to take it off.
