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 – https://www.facebook.com/jolene.riley.5, 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.
