Green&Purple, Lampwork&PMC
all that stuff I love....

I decided to make a really luxurious necklace, featuring my favorite colors: purple and green. I made a great many mini-hollow beads, used my special silver coated beadalon, and finished the piece off a pmc clasp adorned with faceted purple and green (synthetic) stones[1]

I made this thing back when PMC was about $25 a packet, and they couldn't be bothered with making the stuff in copper, because it was too cheap to matter. —I love putting multiple textures on PMC, as I did for this clasp.

multistrand necklace with lots and lots of mini-hollows, plus of course many other little glass beads; tiny amethyst and peridot (also jade); strung on silver coated beadalon. Features a stone-set pmc clasp.
