A classic combination

| New pieces

Hello friends, can you believe its December?   A mere four and a half weeks before we usher in 2015. Time is whizzing by! But before 2015, there is the big Winter Markt to prepare for. Today’s piece is ready to go to the Winter Markt.

This piece started out with these vintage French glass pearls from the 50s. I wanted to do something classical but interesting with them which made me decorate them with these little black glass rondelles. These vintage glass rondelles are quite uncommon, rare, I’d even say because of the way they are faceted. It gives them an interesting dimension which in turn makes the pearl beads more interesting. But it still seemed like too simple a necklace with just these beads. I felt that they needed more oomph.

Then I remembered a Venetian bead I had with black and white and aventurine stripes. It seemed fitting to add this bead on as a pendant.
