This necklace represents my love of the ocean and the beach. It began with a handmade lampwork cabochon which I surrounded with several colors of seed beads, glass pearls and Swarovski crystals. The upper part of the necklace is sky blue jade and the fringe is a gathering of freshwater Biwa pearls, glass pearls, Swarovski crystals and sky blue jade….much like a collection of ocean treasures you might find on the beach. The cabochon is backed with sea-green ultra suede.
Ocean Treasures Beadwork Necklace
About the Artist: Paula Huckabay
I have been an artist and painter most of my life and started making jewelry in 2002. My style has evolved and what I find I enjoy the most now is beadwork and bead embroidery because it allows me to be artistic and creative in a specific way. My inspiration can come from anywhere, things I see in nature, color combinations, the beads themselves and ideas that form in my mind...many times in the middle of the night.
