Created with Handcrafted Clay Beads
The earrings and necklace shown here are made with forest green beads created from a simple geometric polymer clay cane. This rich cane design consists of gold, navy, forest green and burgundy with a gold border. Also used in the necklace are gold beads unique with their "grain" effect and marbled beads using the same colors. In addition to the handcrafted clay beads, copper and brass colored glass seed beads were used. Both earrings and necklace are finished with goldfilled findings. Earrings are shown as leverbacks, but can also be done on a frenchwire. The necklace is approximately 26" long.
Fun with Shapes
The rich golden grain beads make a very interesting neutral. The simple shapes are funky yet are not over powering . All styles shown as a frenchwire, but can also be done as a leverback at $15.00.
