Handcrafted Jewelry — Designed to be Different

Blue Frost

Leave a comment

Someone has speeded up the clock again. The last weeks have disappeared in a whirl of activity, none of which included posting to the blog. This is my latest piece, “Blue Frost.”

I’m a sucker for frosted glass and as soon as I saw the strand last winter I knew I wanted to work with it. And this was the week, now that summer finally seems to have arrived. The soft muted colours remind me of a day at the beach.

I matched the glass with some tiny sterling silver spacers. I took the pieces to the Bergen Farmers’ Market last weekend and was able to put the idea together while chatting with visitors. Back home the necklace came together fairly quickly. Then I had to take it all apart again and restring it. It pays to pay attention — that way both ends of the necklace will match :-). Next up, a pair of earrings.

Beads? What can I say — they snuck up on me when I wasn't looking. Now I'm hooked.
