'Monochrome Megamix'

Monochrome Lampwork Glass BeadsHere they are! Glossy black, pure white and crystal clear in a variety of shapes, sizes and designs.

Monochrome Lampwork Glass BeadsMy favourite is the cute 'Dasiy' one on the right of the picture above. Very fiddly but oh-so pretty! I will make more of these - maybe a set of them?

Monochrome Lampwork Glass BeadsThere are lots of focals in this set including some funky lentils and a groovy cone.

Monochrome Lampwork Glass BeadsThe heart above is simple but effective - a slightly-raised white heart on a jet black background. I can see this as a pendant.

Whoever buys this stash is going to have loads of fun making lots of jewellery!

I got totally absorbed in making this little lot. I think it was all the stringer - I reach Stringer Nirvana and time just flies.

Talking of stringer, if you're in the Bristol area (or even if you're not) you may be interested to know that I'm teaching a beadmaking course at Fire Works on November 7th. We'll be doing lots of stringerwork and many other fun things too. Please click here for details.

Laura, I'm new to this, your beads are beautiful. Ever thought of getting Chris to video you making them, to help all of us amateurs who can't get to classes.
