Aztec bead series – Revisited

I’ve been always fascinated by ancient civilizations and antique artifacts like coins, jewelry, and other decorative items from long lost cultures. So it was just a matter of time when my fascination with everything ancient would inspire my lampworking in one form or the other.

Last year I made the first sets in my “Aztec” series, featuring genuine gold leaf and spirals imprinted on a shape that was a bit irregular to resemble antique coins.

In the last couple of days I’ve been revisiting this topic, but with a stronger emphasis on color and introducing enamel powders into the design.

As so many, I can’t wait for spring and summer to arrive and that is visible in my recent color choices, for example vivid orange, cheery apricot, vibrant purple and sunny coral.

On the right is my newest set, “Aztec Lilac“. It features 3 different shades of purple enamels: Purple Rose, Dusty Rose and Lilac, on a base of clear.

As always, you can find my beads either onmy webpage (free US shipping) or in my Etsy shop.
