A lot of the time when I sell a bead, pendant, or what have you, I don’t get to see what great things it has gone off to become. Each piece that goes out the door feels like a piece of me and I’m saying good-bye to it forever.
Once in a while I get lucky and I receive an email from someone and get to see that bead or pendant again and what the buyer decided to create with it. Like seeing an old friend my face lights up with joy as I take in what has become of that bead I brought to life.
A couple of days ago I was lucky enough to get a conversation on Etsy showing off one of my long tube beads.
Thank you Chris for brightening my day with these photos and your beautiful work with the necklace and lampwork focal bead.
If you’ve used one of my lampwork beads or pendants in a jewelry design of your own, please send me an email at joe[at]avenuebeads.com and It’ll be showcased here on the AvenueBeads.com blog.
Do you prefer to use large focal pieces like my lampwork tube beads or several normal sized beads when designing a necklace?
