Continuing the Easter Island Journey

I am continuing to enjoy working with Barbara Hanselman's Easter Island "guys".  I finished this piece today using one of her pendants, two of her tassles and a lampwork bead by Julie Burgard of Outwest which she tumble etched.  I finished it with African trade beads - copper bicones and hand painted glass beads on 3mm Greek leather cord.




I also made a necklace using one of Marti Conrad's wing pendants. I also used some lamp work beads by Cheryl Harris and some lovely porcelain beads by Ingrid Mueller. 


The entire necklace is strung on metallic Greek leather and drapes beautifully.

Jean - They are beautiful. I love the design you used on the first one. It goes with the Easter Island head so wonderfully.
