I’ve had a strand of graduated rondelle beads forever. I’ve left them until now because stringing them would be way too simple. After brainstorming and sketching some ideas, I finally found a solution that has made me happy. This kind of rondelle shape can feel limiting due to their center drilled hole. To get around this, I’ve used silver wire to turn each bead into a drop, giving the opportunity for the opal that threads through these beads to get the most exposure. The inclusions of vibrant opal are mostly very subtle, so a bright lamp work disc brings out the colour without taking away from the star of this piece.

The last piece I made for my own collection has rarely left my neck since.
Featuring hundreds of individually wire-wrapped beads(peridot, peach coral, onyx, lapis lazuli and turquoise), jumbo and regular sized teardrop lamp work glass beads, and amazingly clear rock crystal beads.
