Every now and then you experience a little lapse in creativity and absolutely cannot think of a whimsical / cute name for your creations.

This is one of those times.

I got some pretty lampwork beads from a recent bead-shopping-binge, and was itching to make something for myself. I haven't made anything with lampwork beads before, so this was fun. :)

Here you have it, the oh-so-innovative-and-originally-named "Lampwork".

Cobalt, silver and pink lampwork glass beads, accompanied by twin dangling chains of cobalt chinese crystal doughnuts and blue/cobalt AB czech fire-polished glass beads.
These earrings are almost like a showcase of beads from around the world!
1. Lampwork beads are said to have originated from Murano, Italy (they remind me of the lovely glass-blowing techniques that I had the privilege and pleasure of witnessing on my trip to Venice a couple years back). It's awe-inspiring how the artisans there have created such beautiful, colourful and intricately-patterned glasswork.
2, Chinese crystal doughnuts are, as their namesake suggests, from China.
3. The gorgeous and multi-faceted Czech "Preciosa" fire-polished glass beads hail from the Czech Republic.

Come to think of it, I should have named my earrings "Intercontinental Flair". Or something.
