Its strange how sometimes things just seem to evolve. I had a glassy friend over for a cup of coffee and as we sat talking and stroking glass beads I picked up some of the copper wire that was lying around (I had intended to make some jewellery up - okay, okay I admit it, I'm just untidy) and started to play.
My friend had admired the necklace I was wearing and asked about the small copper twisted connector bead on it. It was as we were looking at this that I decided - why not elongate it and turn it into a setting for a lampwork focal? The results were rather pleasing. Needless to say I got a little carried away and made up several.
