One of the obsessions that I’ve never fully outgrown is glass nuggets, or globs. They’re just so neat. They have many of the qualities that I like about beads - roundness, shine, smoothness and transparency. I remember arranging them for the fish in the aquarium, and hoarding them like jewels in my box of treasures.
I have a huge stash of globs, and every so often I get the urge to bead with them. For today, I thought it would be fun to use one as a ring focal. So, I poured out a bunch of globs, and searched through for some evenly shaped specimens to work with.
Ring # 12 - Midnight Blue
I selected a pretty blue oval shaped nugget, and some deep blue and black seed beads to compliment it. After adding a simple peyote stitch bezel, I stitched this unusual cabochon to a simple peyote band, and added some seed bead loops to polish off the joins.
This piece has been a nightmare to photograph, so no listing yet. This photo was all I could salvage from several dozen shots. I’ll just have to wait for the sun to cooperate. In the meantime, I created another treasury in tribute to some other midnight blue creations. To see the complete collection, visit It’s Midnight Somewhere.
