My beloved Carnival colourway with a twist! I wondered what would happen if I etched (frosted) some of the beads to give them a softer look. Voilà! A joyous and utterly happy festival of colours. I love the contrast between the soft glowing etched beads and the vibrance of the polka dotted carnival beads.
My hands made this Carnival Glow necklace. The frosted beads measure approximately 18 mm x 11 mm. The round beads measure approximately 10mm x 8mm. The disk beads measure approximately 16mm x 6mm. The necklace closes with a round sterling silver toggle clasp. The total length of the necklace is approximately 20".
My hands made these beads. I use Effetre glass, a little CIM and occasionally Vetrofond. All my beads are kiln annealed, thoroughly cleaned and inspected. There is no paint on any of my beads, just glass upon glass upon glass.
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.
