Wire-wrapped jewelry

This is a necklace I made for my sister, Cynthia. The bead idea is from Deryn Mentock's article in Belle Armoire Jewelry. LOVE that magazine. I like the contrast of the the heavy gauge steel wire with the very delicate 32 gauge twisted wire necklace. Delicate and strong together. I've used a variety of faceted gemstone beads, I think they're quartz, and two pearl disks, which must be dyed, because I don't think pearls are naturally deep pink. The lampwork bead was purchased, it has a neat stripe that reminds me of mint candies. Yummy. Hurray for the bench block, my new best friend.
