Having just returned from the Bahamas I might be a little obsessed with blue right now. You cannot imagine just how blue it is. I also felt like making a smaller necklace, something that will sit just inside a v-neck or a shirt collar.
This mini necklace is made up of my mini beads. Mini beads are super size fun to make. Smaller beads are sometimes easier to wear and yet still have a big punch of colour.
My hands made this bahama blues mini necklace. The beads vary in size from 8mm x 6 mm to 10mm x 8mm. The necklace closes with a sterling silver lobster claw and has an extender so that it is adjustable. The necklace measures 17" and is adjustable to 19".
Each bead is individually made by me! I use Effetre glass, a little CIM and occasionally Vetrofond. There is no paint on any of my beads, just glass upon glass upon glass. All my beads are kiln annealed so that they are durable, thoroughly cleaned and inspected.
Please remember the jewelry looks larger than life in the pictures which is why it is important to check the size. I have tried to capture the colours as accurately as possible but many monitors vary.
