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!

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.
