Polymer Clay "Stone" Necklace

I've been wondering what to do with these. They've sat on my work table for the past three weeks while I wait for inspiration to strike. This weekend, with an impending winter storm headed our way, I found myself in a contemplative bead-weaving mood. I wanted to hunker down with a good movie, a hot cup of tea, and little dishes filled with beads.



Thirteen hours of work later, I finished this OOAK piece and it's now listed in my Etsy shop.





I love that each new piece of clay I make presents a challenge for finishing. This piece was a nice surprise!

these really look like real stones, amazing. Your beadwork is immaculate. I had a beadwork business for 25 years, once upon a time, so I have an innate love and appreciation for your time, style and ability. Wow.
