Bead Trends January Issue and sets for this week

I wanted to share with you my latest published design that is currently appearing in the January 2011 Bead Trends magazine.

This design is a bracelet of natural crystal stones and handmade lampwork beads. The beads were etched to create an icy feel. These stones and beads were coordinated with silver beads whose icy etched designs added even more of a wintry feel.

This design also created an extension that when added to the bracelet converts it into a focal necklace.
This would be beautiful for the winter bride using the necklace for the bridal gown at the ceremony. The bracelet could then be worn again by the bride to remind her of her amazing day!
