red,black and white necklace

I like this color combination. I also like the the natural form of the red coral combined with the constraint of the striped black and white glass beads.

I'm having fun making necklaces!



We are a vapor, You are eternal



We are a moment, You are forever
Lord of the Ages, God before time
We are a vapor, You are eternal
Love everlasting, reigning on high

Holy, holy, Lord God Almighty
Worthy is the Lamb Who was slain
Highest praises, honor and glory
Be unto Your name, be unto Your name

We are the broken, You are the healer
Jesus, Redeemer, Mighty to save
You are the love song we'll sing forever
Bowing before You, blessing Your name

Holy, holy, Lord God Almighty
Worthy is the Lamb Who was slain
Highest praises, honor and glory
Be unto Your name, be unto Your name
Be unto Your name...

I've been working with asymmetrical compositions. I made this necklace using some commercially made raku beads combined with some of my raku beads and glass beads. I've always loved that nature often appears symmetrical but if you look closely it's not. There are always surprise shapes and lines, then light and shading change it again. It is 23 inches long and weighs about 6 ounces. There are glaze imperfections on the kiln-fired raku beads that I made.
