Torch-Work Dichroic Glass and Baroque Fresh Water Pearls


A 24 inch, hand knotted necklace, torch-work dichroic glass beads and baroque fresh water pearls, finished with a lobster-claw clasp.

The glass beads were made by Jolene Riley of Portland, Oregon; on Face Book –, and the “Art Beads” Face Book Group.

This strand consists of “Orphans”, leftovers and such. Beads that didn’t make the cut for one of Ms Riley’s other projects. I paired them up with baroque fresh water pearls and some gold plated heishi for accent.

This the first necklaces of several using Ms Riley’s beads, I went on a torch-work glass kick in the Summer of 2020, and I need to make space on my work table.
