Alabaster



These are vintage Alabaster glass beads from Japan, circa 1940s, which I also bought from oldragonlair.  I love alabaster, and this necklace design is a decent first attempt, but I still think it needs something else.  It needs more personality, maybe something more like this from Ruche?  

P.S. for pretty wooden jewelry for sale, there is this bracelet from Ruche.

Meghan -
I love the necklace as is. But a little more personality could not hurt either. :) I like the ruche idea. But others would be a pendant of sorts or a tissue like flower slightly off center. But congrats and keep up the good work! I look forward to more!

I like the soft glow of the alabaster. Torie's idea is nice. Another idea could be stringing a green bead (e.g. pearl or crystal) in place of every other knot.

You and Sean take some nice pictures. What do you use?
