This is a full set,necklace and bracelet. The scrolls, and dots are done with a black silver glass. You must have good ventilation when working with glass, that has metal content. One cold day, I tried this without opening the windows very much. It was a big OPPS!, had a headache for the rest of the day.
It's a little chilly today, so instead of making beads, I am messing around on the blog here, and of course, Facebook. Even use twitter once and awhile, although, once I discovered Facebook, I have not spent much time, on My Space, Twitter, etc. Even guilty of not keeping my blog up in a timely fashion. Oh well, such as life. Seems like we just do not have enough hours in a day, once you start getting a little older. So below is the picture of the set I listed on my Etsy site.

A picture of Seed Bead Crochet Spiral Rope, made into a stunninng necklace. This will not be for sale in my Etsy Shop, unless I do not sell it next Saturday at the Art and Craft Fair, at the Buckhead Ridge, Florida Moose Lodge. I really enjoy doing this crochet work, when all the Lampwork Beads are tucked away in the Kiln, waiting for the Kiln Fairy to determine what I will get the next morning. This is very relaxing to do, when you finally learn how to do it. It is not easy at all to learn, yet once you get it down, it is quite fun.

Here is a beautiful set of 9 round lampwork beads, and a focal, all listed together as one set on Etsy. I also handmade the Murrini used on the Focal. I have finally made it back to my torch. My broken leg is feeling much better, so easier to sit at the torch and make my Hot Glass Beads.
