Large Lampwork Glass Cabochon by BobbiePeneBeads

I was browsing Etsy looking for this month's art bead palette inspiration when I came across a New Zealand shop run by artist Bobbie Pene, and I'm so glad I did.

Bobbie's shop is full of lovely lampwork goodies, but what really caught my eye were the interchangeable ring and pendant toppers she makes. I love the idea of interchangeable jewelry, and being able to switch out favorite lampwork beads whenever I want is awesome.

Bobbie has two styles of ring shanks, a smaller ring and a larger one, as well as a pendant option. But if you're looking for a straight art bead to incorporate into your own designs, it looks as if Bobbie can turn it into a cab for you, too.

The pieces I highlighted above are only a few available, so be sure to stop by Bobbie's shop to see more!

Wow! I was scrolling through my blog roll this morning and saw my name in one of the titles. THANK YOU so much for finding me and featuring me, and I love how you turned each of my pieces into a color palette. I have never looked at my color combinations that way, I just pick up glass and work with it. Sometimes it looks great and sometimes it ends up in the "disaster" jar.

They're all beautiful but I especially love the blue green pendant and the cabochon. Thank you for bringing her work to our attention.
