Tale of a fish

I have been making this necklace for ages....

Finally got around to putting the clasp on today :)

The fish is lampwork bymy friend Deb from Debbie Does beads and the tail is wirewrapped and embelished with seed beads, catseye beads and czech leaves.

I think it is really beautiful, but not sure what to wear it with though...

New bloom necklace

Made another version of the Bloom necklace over the wekeend because we had trouble sourcing all the materials in time for the class at Mad Monnies.  I think I like this one even more !!!
