Green Garnet & Glass Flower

Hi Everyone,
Welcome to my first posting. The piece in the picture was made by me, with varegated faceted Green or Grossler Garnet and Sterling Silver beads. The bail, or the piece that the bead hangs from, is made from Fine Silver wire that has been flamed to form the little balls at the ends, and then formed into a bail. It has been dipped in liver of sulphur to give it a gentle light gold patina. The glass bead is from dark Amber tranparent glass with a layer fo silver leaf and Sea Pearl glass frit. The petals were made from Light Transparent brown glass.
Blogs are new to me and I don't know how much writing I'll actually do, but it's nice to have a venue to display new pieces.

The colors and shapes in this piece make me think of the sea. The metal pieces are especially interesting as is the "flower." Congratulations on another beauty!
