A new twist for Bead cones

Who says you have to use bead cones on multi-strand necklaces? Why not try to use them in an unconventional way. For example, in this necklace, I feature Elaine Ray's glazed cones in the front of the necklace, strung like beads on beading wire, with a big ceramic barrel in the center (from MA Carroll) along with some bronzite rounds and lampwork spacers (Studio Rent).

  12. Those cones are much too pretty to be hidden at the back of a necklace. Very nice work.

    What a great idea !! Hope you don't mind if we give it a try. Lorelei I was wondering if the neclace with blue buttons and a bird pendant in your recent photos was listed on ETSY and I missed it or if will it be listed. I love it. And I must say again the blue bracelet for Tamera was AWESOME !!
    P.s. A lady that I work with grew up in Whitesboro Ny. She said you would know where that is. Have a nice evening. Mel Mel

  14. Hi MelMel-
    That necklace was a custom order for one of my customers. I will make another similar to it... but I'm not sure when. maybe tonight. I have to watch the Big Brother finale so I could wire wrap while I'm doing it. stay tuned for tomorrow morning...

  15. I tried this once with silver, but it kept gapping (if that makes sense) -- yours is so much better. LOVE it!

  16. Beautiful bead cones.

    In London go to the Tate and don't miss the JMW Turner paintings.

  18. Lorelei,

    Wow! The colors, the shapes, the clay and metal play. Everything comes together so wonderfully. I also like the way the raven is standing guard on one of the beads - he is not going to let anyone walk away with his treasure!

  19. Thanks Elaine!
    Yes that was a little happy accident that I didn't realize until I was editing the pictures. The placement of that bird couldn't be more perfect!!

I'm sorry to have to turn on the word verification here, but I got fed up with spammers comments!
