Lampwork Inspirations

Yesterday I had some fun making an Egyptian themed fashion collage, and then I played around a bit and made one for my One Zebra Necklace. I was having such a good time that I decided to keep going, and ended up creating some interesting looks based on handmade lampwork beads. I started with just four beads from some of my favorite artists, and added pieces that enhanced their colors and themes.

Bumblebee Dreams by Grace Lampwork Beads
became an enchanted garden:

Lavender Honey

Galia by Green Bird Studio
became a tropical beach getaway:

Passion Flower

Juicy Red Flower Spacers from Lampwork by Amy
became a park in spring:

Bowl of Cherries

Purple Nautilus by Shed Beads
became an underwater paradise:


I really enjoyed playing with colors and textures, using beads as a starting point. What do you think?
