New Necklaces

Now that all the craft shows were done for the year, I finally got some time to play with new ideas for my jewelries. I've been wanting to embellish them with warm and fun findings, and here are two of the latest ones I came up with during the weekend. They are now both in my shop.

During the week, I also took a lampworking workshop at work (sounds like a tongue twister) and made some glass beads. It was so much fun!!! It's probably one of my favorite workshop so far and makes me want to set up a little studio at home, although the idea of a gas tank freaks me out. I can't sell those beads, but I am making them into necklaces for my friends. I will show them once I give them away, since I don't want to ruin the surprise. PS: If you are not familiar with lampworking, here is a nice YouTube video. It's a very nice and therapeutic activity, especially now it's cold and the fire really warms me up.
