Fibulae pins with handmade glass beads

I’ve had such a busy few weeks pricing up for the pop up gallery, followed by a few days away to relax, if you call 12 mile walks relaxing.

One of my last makes before setting up the gallery were fibulae. I make my lampwork glass beads throughout the year so I have a selection to choose from. I love the process of choosing the beads for each fibula, I think it’s the putting together the colours, shapes, but especially the textures. I do love frit beads. I  like to choose individual beads that coordinate. I do this with my bead sets too, mixing glass beads with ceramic beads.

I think my choice of colour and texture reflect my love of the landscape and I could happily keep each and every shawl pin I make.
