The gemstone/bead trader from Afghanistan visited Christchurch again recently and he had some fantastic beads to show me. I couldn’t resist the history behind them and the aged beauty and smooth feel of them and I now have a fabulous new collection of ancient glass beads to create some wonderful new pieces of jewellery with! I have just finished four special necklaces featuring these beads and they will be displayed in the Winter exhibition at ConneXion Gallery during June. Image as pictured is “Winter Sun” necklace by Deanna Gracie © – it is 46cm long and the widest bead in the necklace is 8mm wide. I love the beautiful and subtle colours in these wonderful beads.
