This style of lampwork pendant is always a real joy for me to work with and the results always turn out beautifully every time I've worked with them. I love the dreamy look of the encapsulated flowers within the drop and I've made a few OOAK necklaces so far out of different colors of the pendants. Here's an example of another done last winter as a custom order: The Autumn Orchid
The handmade beaded necklace pictured above is my most recent creation with this style of pendant. This beaded lampwork necklace is an OOAK ( one-of-a-kind ) piece designed around a breathtaking lampwork pendant (5 cm x 3.75 cm) in carnation pink that's then been accented by matching beads and golden accents.
The length of this necklace adjusts between 17.5" - 20.25" (44.5 cm - 51.5 cm) using a lobster claw clasp at the nape hooks to an extender chain. This allows this necklace to be worn tight enough to be a choker or loose enough to lie against your chest while a small beaded stone bauble at the end of the chain gives an extra bit of decorative touch.
