Julie’s Bead Pen
For this Bead Pen I used the GOOD N PLENTY Fire Designs Hand Blown Furnace Glass mix, the TierraCast Antique Silver 10mm Legend Large Hole Spacer and the TierraCast Antique Silver 10mm Flower Large Hole Spacer. I knew I wanted to use the Good-N-Plenty Fire Designs, but I couldn’t decide between the spacers so I bought both. After getting all the pieces I played with different combinations before I decided to just use both spacers. I love how this pen turned out and use it daily.
I was inspired to make these earrings by one of my coworkers. This earring is one 7 inch earthread that is wrapped through both holes. I considered different combinations of beads and pendants before deciding on the Swarovski hearts and faceted rounds. Because it is all one piece, you can adjust the length in different spots, or change the beads, to create a new unique earring.
