Christmas Tree Lampwork Necklace (removed dead link)
She crept downstairs to
Find the treasures under the
Lighted Christmas tree.
I've been waiting for just the right beads to place with this colorful Christmas tree, and decided a treasure necklace base would be best.
The lampwork pendant was created by a SRA (Self-Representing Artist) from Canada, islandgirl. It is 31 mm (1.2 inches) from top to bottom, approx. 18.8 mm (.75 inches) wide at the midpoint, and is 11.6 mm (.46 inches) thick. It was made on a 3mm mandrel.
The treasure beaded base is a mix of green chipped glass, large seed beads, and crystals. There is a secure hook and eye clasp to close, and the necklace measures 25.5 inches in length.
