Being a former city girl, I loved Lynn Davy's
Big Apple Necklace and the way it combines a little bit of bead stitching with an
unusual lampwork glass bead.
If you want to combine more stitching with
lampwork glass beads, try Lynn's Going Bananas necklace or the Rhumba bracelet
by Jamie Hogsett - both of these projects combines my favorite beaded bead
stitching techniques with colorful lampwork beads.
Danielle Fox's Playing Around shows off some lovely
flat handmade lampwork glass disc beads. The combination of bold glass bead
colors mixed with silky ribbon makes for a fun, feminine bracelet.
