If they weren't morning glory, I'd say adding flowers to dichroic beads this gorgeous was a case of gilding the lily.
The beads have a base of the palest green with just a hint of champagne in it, and the surface glitters with pink dichroic spangles.
The two tube beads that flank the centre focal are both appliqued with blue morning glory blossoms, and green leaves and vines.
Such magnificent beads could only be the work of Paula Radke, dichroic glass artiste par excellence.
I've added faceted blue onyx 6mm beads, rose quartz roundels, LOTS of antiqued pewter accents, and silvery seed beads to make a 21 inch strand.
The clasp is a floral motif pewter hook set.
At its present length, it will go nicely over a turtleneck or the like; but if a buyer would care to have it shortened, naturally I'll do that for free.
