Pollen Necklace

Pollen Necklace - lampwork glass beads, garnets & sterling silver.

The beads were made with lots of different colors of glass - Cim's Canyon de Chelly, opalino carnellian, stoneground, dark ivory, tabby, opal yellow, Cim's Crocus, Richenbach multi... all decorated with bands of Double Helix Aurae and heavily reduced.

I have posted this before but here is a little drawn tutorial on how I make this shape of bead.

I have lots, and lots, of new jewelry to share. Last week saw a lot of late night wire wrapping and bead stringing.
