Curved Beads

Posted by Lesley McFarland on 9/27/2006
These are my curved beads, they are quite difficult and time consuming to make but I think they make lovely beads for a necklace and open a whole realm of possibilities, I am still exploring so more will appear of different design as I go along.
I hope you enjoy looking at them.

Green enamelled curved focal
A slightly different shape for this one, I am experimenting a lot with the curved beads, different styles seem to suggest different shapes.

Green enamelled and silvered curve bead
I like the blend of enamels on this bead and I have added silver for detail.

    Beautiful!
    Angelinabeadalina: Lesley, I remembered that enamelled ivory bead, so I was in the right place one time before I got sites mixed up :) That is an absolutely gorgeous piece, very much like it's seen more than this century, like it has a knowledge of past and present both. That's art, when you can give that much feeling to a single piece of glass!
