Lampwork Glass and Czech Crystal Pendant/Earrings

I made this wirewrap set with lampwork glass and Czech crystal beads.  I made it for my daughter, so she was my inspiration.  I wasn't sure how the silver wire would look with all of the gold, but I was happy with how they turned out.

One Of My Latest Creations

I made this set starting with a beautiful lampwork focal and then adding semiprecious goldstone beads, beautifully faceted red Czech fire-polished crystals, freshwater pearls, and vermeil silver beads with a 925 sterling silver toggle clasp. 

My inspiration for this piece was my wonderful mother, since I made it for Mother's Day.  I wanted it to be fairly neutral but also allow the beautiful focal colors to stand out as well.
