I taught a workshop recently on making striped Skinner blend translucent stacks. As part of the demonstration, I made a stack and then fashioned a simple bead from thin slices of the stack laid over pearl polymer. When I got home, I played with the bead a bit, reforming it, and wondered what I might be able to do with it. Looking at my worktable, I spied a baggie of pearls, and knew what I would do. This sweet and simple little necklace is the result. The pearls are semi-imbedded into the polymer before baking. Then, I varnished the bead as well as the pearls around it, to ensure they are firmly sealed.
