Picasso in Black Necklace | The Long Collection
Each bead in the Picasso in Black Necklace is a miniature, dimensional painting. I use tiny bits of glass called "stringers" to "paint" the patterns, which melt into the base bead as I draw with the glass at the edge of the torch flame. I simply love making this style of bead, and when I put them together into a necklace you have a strand of art to wear. The base of each bead is black glass, however, I have pulled a rich mix of colors - lots of yellow, red, blue, green, and touches of purple and more - to make up each design.
The Picasso in Black is 30 inches long, so easy to wear, and so easy to make a plain outfit outstanding! It closes with my Lyn Foley sterling clasp, and if you have a small neck you may undo the clasp and wear the necklace doubled. Learn more about the clasp here.
