This post will be about a necklace that I made for Mona Baroody, a glass artist from the U.S. who makes some really cool beads. To see some of her work, please visit her Etsy shop: http://www.etsy.com/shop/monaraebeads. Do not forget to browse the "sold" section as well!
Anyhow, Mona and I have collaborated for the Fashion Colorworks contest this year. Neither of our two collaborative pieces came to finals, but nevertheless it was a great fun to work with her beads! We have decided to swap - I got some gorgeous lampwork beads, and promised to make a necklace to Mona in return.
While working on our project, Mona created a very unusual bead (by mistake, as she claims) :)
First, we planned to include it in the contest design, but then I realised that the aggressive mandatory colors of the contest would kill its beauty. And I made a separate piece, just around it.
Guess it's quite clear that it is one of my typical "ocean" pieces. :) All lampwork in this one are by Mona.
That jellyfish bead is awesome!
Just look at the color blend that Mona gave this focal!
Is it water or what? :)
It was fun and a great pleasure working with you, darling! Big Hug!
Visit Monas shop, buy her beads, you will not regret it.
Disclamer: I did not get any money/beads/commodities/royalty for writing this post. It is my own honest opinion.
