Not many of us could make our own lamp work bead. But Mary can. Mary is an accomplished jewelry making enthusiast I have featured before.

I first met Mary when she attended one of my beading parties. She brought this focal bead which she made herself. The centre band consists of two colours of glass rods twisted and then applied to the glass bead. Glass dots were allowed to spread and fuse with the main colour before the bead was flattened.

Mary's own bead collection consists of largely seed beads as she enjoys bead knitting. So I was glad she was able to complete the necklace for her focal bead using beads from my collection.
