Colors of red, silver and gray make up the bulk of this design with each of the beads hand made and textured or finished with a combination of pastes, powders, glitters and recycled foil from CD's. Apple blossoms and rose petals from my hand made paper create the focal pendant. The design is strung on black up-cycled t-shirt cord.
The bail has been created with no metal contacting your skin, great for those with metal allergies. There is no clasp, the design simply pops over your head, is light weight and sits comfortably around the neck line.
All pieces from my signature collection are strung on up-cycled t-shirt cord that I have washed, dried with mother nature, hand cut and stretched. Measurements below include both the necklace length and the length of the necklace being stretched.
The base of my pendant and bail (which is reinforced for added strength) are created from polymer clay that go through several iterations of baking & sanding.
The top surface of my pendants receive between 3 - 5 layers of resin that I hand pour and coat the edges with.
Towards the top of the necklace are two beads made from polymer clay that have been textured by hand then baked.
Each of the beads, pendant and bail have their own unique texture, shape and surface finish. No two beads or pendant/bail are identical which add to their charm of handmade.
Length of necklace cord: 25 cm
Length of necklace cord stretched: 30 cm
