Earth Dream by Guest Designer, Jacquelyn Rice
C.N.Y. Glass Studio & Gallery Artist Jacquelyn Rice www.cnyglass.com
Inspiration is not hard to find when you’re surrounded by the Adirondack landscapes of Upstate New York. The lampwork beads have an earthy natural sense about them that is just amplified with the amazing brass chain and charms by Vintaj.
The Lariat is made using Vintaj chain, ring charm Dream, a couple jump rings, head pins and two lampwork glass beads made by Jacquelyn Rice “me”. The tube shaped glass beads are made with soft glass and a combination of frit and foils.
