Lampwork and Clay Blog Hop Reveal

My piece features the focal and glass beads from Pineridge, all other materials, I added.

The focal is triangular so I tried my hand at capturing this shape by embezzling it in seed beads

Since the bezel worked, I added the glass faceted beads and the gold tone metal circles

I wasn't certain what I was going to make with this, but then decided to make a brooch (I have never made a brooch before) so I chose this cream colored leather (which was soooo thick and a bit complicated to sew)

I finished it by lining it with amber colored rounds and glued on the pin back

Please check out the other participants of the blog hop, Enjoy!

  1. Nice, Dee! I hadn't thought of using a triangular piece for a broach. Pretty! Thanks for being in the hop!

  2. Gorgeous! The brooch turned out really well. I would wear it!

  3. What a great brooch. I love the way you encased it with the seed bead bezel and then added the other beads. Very pretty.

  4. I have never made a broach before either. What a great job. It looks like a lovely Holiday piece. Thanks for sharing

  5. Hats off to you and your beading. My favorite so far.

  6. I love what you did with the piece! Great Job!
