Beaded Bead Necklace in Pink Silver Black with Lampwork Glass

For this necklace, I made 8 beaded beads, including a Conway Bead, 3 Nuts and Washers, 2 Infinity Beads, an Octahedral Cluster and an Mini Ionic Rhombic Dodecahedron. Then, I added 7 borosilicate and lampwork glass beads torched by several different artists. That's 15 beads in all. Together they make a pallet of bright and pale pinks, silver, gray, and black.
They're all strung on a yard of 100% silk cord that I twisted and plied on my spinning wheel. If you enjoy stringing beads, you could use this set as a beginning of a more elaborate necklace, but I would wear them just as they are, strung on cord.
Includes 6 inches (15 cm) of beads. Largest beaded bead measures just over an inch (26 mm). Click on the photos to go to the listing.
