Making a statement...

Statement: I like love beads.

June 2010 Statement Necklace, in honor of the 2010 Bead & Button Show. Features 45 lampwork beads by me, some of which are from my Fractal Swirl series of beads.

Hungry for more yummy eye-candy? Check out the following links to my sister ABS Carnival Bloggers - they made statement necklaces too!

Mary, Jeannie, and Cindy, thank you all SO very much for your kind words! I really appreciate them! I like my beads and jewelry, and my husband says they're pretty, but he just wants me to keep making dinner. Seems like it "counts" more when other jewelry artists say nice things! Thanks again!

Those beads are a gorgeous colour! Is that a hand made chain?

My husband said one of my beads looked like I'd put Nemo in a blender!

Great beads! love how they all come together like a pirates treasure! The bold chain is a great juxtaposition to the delicate colors and glass. Very pretty!

I love your beads, the colors and textures are so summery and refreshing like an ice cold glass of yumminess!

Oo-La-La! Beautiful piece! What's the saying? More is less? but in this case, more is more! And it's just lovely! Thanks for participating!

All, thank you SO much for your thoughtful comments! It is so very nice for me to hear sweet things about my creations. I really appreciate them!

IslandGirl asked if the chain was handmade...no, it isn't. :( I'd intended to do a rosary-style chain with the beads and with my new favorite wire, the 19 ga. annealed steel wire, but realized that if I did that, I wouldn't make the deadline.
