Getting back at it!

It's good to be back...
The lovely Carol of C. Evans Designs  generously offered me a set of her gorgeous lampwork beads.
The irregular stripe effect and smooth texture on her beads play nicely with my favorite material, recycled sweaters. Though my soldering needs work (SO out of practice) I moved forward anyway and created this statement necklace in oranges, grays and taupes with a touch of burgundy. The copper will age into a deeper brown over time. Looking forward to making more jewelry soon! Thanks Carol!!
