A twist on my signature design... hand made beads have been created from an assortment of recycled paper, chili flakes, turmeric, paprika, prairie grasses & wild flowers to name a few. The pendant has been created from a sheet of my hand made paper and 2 varieties of apple blossoms from last seasons harvest.
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.
Each of the paper beads have been coated in several layers of high gloss making the beads water-resistant. The paper beads are complimentary to the pendant in shades of pale yellow, pale pink and peach.
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: 30 cm
Length of necklace cord stretched: 41 cm
Length of necklace incl pendant (un-stretched): 34 cm
