I call this necklace "Calypso," because the brightly colored lampwork discs (aren't they fabulous?!) and the turquoise colored magnesite rondelles combined to remind me of those carefree, fun-in-the-sun days on a Caribbean island!

I think rondelles are my favorite bead shape to work with. I love stacking them, using them as spacers - just love them! What is your favorite bead shape? Can you pick one?

Beautiful necklace.
Fine colors and the beads' shapes,reminding the African style.I also like rondello,but not in very big size,as I never know,what to do with them,but my favorite shape is the rocaille of all kinds,I love to work with.
As for crystals-the rivoli,of course.
Warm Hugs-Halinka-

Beach-perfect colors! The collection of lampwork discs adds fabulous visual interest. I can imagine the fun you had designing this piece. My favorite bead? A perfectly cut size 11 seed bead begging to be stitched into something new!

So beautiful! I don't make jewelry much anymore, but my favorite bead to make is the seashell. I'm a bit of an addict.
