I had found a great sale on polymer clay about six months ago, bought a lot of colors and then forgot about them until I thought I might make Christmas tree ornaments for the holiday season. But I didn’t really like what I came up with and began making beads just for fun.
The beads took over. I made all sorts of beads, experimenting with various polymer clay techniques described in several books I happen to have. Interests sometimes start that way….a slow accruing of related materials until one day, an idea combines them in some exciting way.
The necklaces delight me. Each one is different, made of my own hand-made and hand-lacquered beads, then carefully designed and strung. They average 20 to 30 inches and sell for $47.50 and there are only two dozen: Call 989-894-5925 to order, for more information, or more examples. Here are four starters.
