bead freak!

I was browsing etsy when I came across a fabulous bead shop called the Blue Echo 2. The beads have a very vintage feel and most are czech glass. She also has some authentic vintage pieces such as lockets she says were made using the age old cloisonné process.  I was curious, so I looked it up. Apparently, cloisonné is an ancient metalworking technique, is a multi-step enamel process used to produce jewelry, vases, and other decorative items. The technique first developped in the near east and spread to the Byzantine empire and from there to China. Here are some different beads and lockets from the shop:
