Recipe for Success - A Glass Artists Collaboration - Lampwork Glass Necklace




I am a member of the Etsy Glass Artists Street Team and as such I have become involved in a collaboration project with Kristy Kempinger of chickadee beads. We traded beads a couple months ago and combined them with our own creations to create a collaboration item to sell.
Here is what I came up with.

Base of ivory, rolled in raku frit then decorated with raku and turquoise are the ingredients and recipe for the gorgeous focal bead created by Kristy Kempinger of chickadeebeads. Add to this the deep azure blue and turquoise spacer beads and the turquoise and raku nugget dangle created by me and it is a recipe for success.The hammered antiqued brass chain and flower clasp set off the focal and inspire visions of scenic rural flower gardens in bloom and cool flowing waterways. The focal measures 30mm x 45mm and the total length of the necklace is 29 inches. Kristy and I are both members of the Etsy Glass Artists Street Team - and Lampwork Etc Street Team.
