Pachnoda Necklace


I was trying to achieve snake skin with glass for this necklace – but it was pointed out by Anna that the beads looked like Pachnoda beetles….so that’s what it is now called!

This yummy necklace is the result of various experiments with colours.  Before the beads were etched they looked like little turtles – they are gorgeous beads either way but I was looking for a python look, to carry on with the reptile idea,  inspired by Spikina the Bearded Dragon.  It has a very ethnic look and some of the little spacer beads look like wood!  I found it very difficult to hand this piece over to the gallery owner……It most definately not the end of my foray into capturing the beauty of reptile and amphibians using glass!
