Green and Gold Ribbed Focal Bead Necklace - featuring my own handmade, flame-worked glass focal bead and balanced at either side with a Czech glass flower spacer bead.  

The necklace is then strung with a needle woven section of matt green size 11/0 Japanese rocaille glass seed beads, spiraled with size 15/0 translucent AB green Japanese rocaille glass seed beads.  

Each section is interspersed with Japanese galvanized gold plated glass seed beads and Czech translucent green crystal bicone beads.  

Finished off with a needle woven toggle and bar clasp in galvanized gold seed beads.   The thread is a specialized beading thread and involves at least 6 passes through the main focal bead, four passes through the bicone intersections, three passes through the toggle and bar clasp, and at least two passes through the spiral sections.  

Matching green earrings, with flame-worked glass focal beads on a vermeil (gold plate on sterling silver) ear hook.
