New Necklaces

As you know, I make a lot of pendants, just not a lot of necklaces.  I think it's partly because pendants can be made up quickly and when I try a new technique, I'm eager to see what it looks like translated into jewelry.  Every once in a while, though, I make beads that want to be strung together into a necklace.  So today, I thought I'd share two pieces I just finished making.
The first piece was made from an Ikat Skinner Blend.  The pearls and gold seed beads seemed the perfect compliment.

The other necklace has a series of wavy discs cut from a translucent cane wrapped in solid cream polymer.  The translucent clay was colored using embossing powders, so there is a textured look to the pieces.  Small glass "O" beads separate the discs.


  1. Love the striped changes of color going on in that blue necklace, Kristie. And the brown and cream necklace has a wonderful -presence- (bold and beautiful), because of the way you've constructed it, I'll bet it's light to wear. Something that I really appreciate. Great stuff!

    1. Thanks so much for your encouraging comments, Debbie. You're right - both necklaces are quite light and easy to wear. :)

  2. This post is worthy of appreciation, looking forward to more exciting! Swarovski outlet
