I have been trying to fine the time to do more jewelry work. I have had these beads for quite some time. The lava looking blue beads are from one of my mother in laws necklaces that I inherited. I love the quirky look of them. I little book pendant I found at my local antique store. I love the patina on the pages. The rest of the necklace is filled out with kyanite and Yayin beads. I love the glow they give off.
My friend Georgette brought these beads to me to make a rosary for her. They are the millefiori style beads for the Aves and just red glass beads for the Paters. The rosary turned out very nicely.
