Natalie Pappas Also Does Lampwork....

I really need to start reading the descriptions of the things I buy on etsy.....I guess I like pictures better than words.....maybe I have become sick of words being an attorney the last twenty years.  Anyway, I received some beautiful beads from Natalie Pappas yesterday.  I had found a great little set of four beads in her shop that just begged me to buy them.  So I did.  One of them was a porcelain white with a pink, purple, and green flower decal.  Loved it.  She had paired it with two green coin beads on which she made a three leaf design.  She also included a pink and green bead that just seemed to tie everything together.  I pulled out a pink and a purple lampwork bead made by Joyce O'Shea and also a large soo chow jade that also begged me to be included.  Well, to my surprise, the pink and swirly porcelain bead made by Natalie wasn't porcelain at all....it was lampwork.  So I ran back to the listing to read -- yep, sure enough, she does lampwork too.  Then I heard one of Ingrid's butterfly pendants begging me to let it join.  Man, I get so tired of begger beads.......

I built this necklace around copper wire and also used olive green glass pearls and more of my new metallic Greek leather in light fern.  It looks so springy, and layered, and all full of Natalie's and Ingrid's and Joyce's gorgeous work.  It won't be long we will all be looking for spring accessories and this one will be in the shop.....waiting, waiting.

This is one of the reasons I focus on creating beads instead of creating jewelry pieces -- I could never have come up with such a beautiful necklace design. It's just stunning!
