Purple and green recycled glass necklace

I tend to work with a lot of green, brown and blue glass – think wine, beer and spirit bottles. Luckily I really like those colours, so it’s easy to work with them. And I like the message they are promoting, which is all about recycling!

But the other day a friend of mine gave me some purple glasses that were no longer useful, and I have to say it has been quite a treat working with them. It has added a real richness to the work, really feminine in a way too. It’s tricky to use glasses, but it’s worth the effort.
