Bag Jewellery94 viewsCHALLENGE RULES: Create a piece of wearable art with a Valentines Day theme, including at least two of the following mediums: Seedies, wirework, metalwork or lampwork.

I opted for the standard "pink = romantic" colour theme, but had to jazz it up with black.
Mediums used: Lampwork beads, (my own). Base metal pin, chain, heart component and headpins. Seedies.

I had time to make a 2nd piece for the challenge, but didn't want to go the "pink" route again. Black and red appealed to me this time.
Bracelet contains: Base metal chains and head pins. Lampwork beads, (my own). Garnet buttons and rondelles. Seed beads. Spacer beads, silver rounds and bead caps are all Sterling/Bali Silver.

I love how the murrini turned out on these beads. They remind me of patchwork and the sewing samplers we used to do in primary school.
Anyhoo...
Lampwork beads (and murrini) made by me. Black Obsidian Rondelles. Pale purple faceted rondelle gemstone beads. Seedies. Sterling Silver toggle and spacer beads.
