Lampwork glass flower beads by Laura Sparling

I have a project in the garden party-themed May issue of Making Jewellery magazine. I show you how I make my lampwork glass flower beads.

I then show you how to turn them into a super-long 'Garland' necklace.

The brief was 'early summer colours' and in my mind this equates to bright pastels, which I know is sort of an oxymoron, but it makes sense in my head.

The two page article also includes directions for a matching bracelet and earrings.

Issue 92 of Making Jewellery is in the shops now.
