I have spent a great deal of this spring creating my own polymer clay beads.
After purchasing Statci Louise Smith's Tutorial, I was bead obsessed.
My beads were everything I always hoped to create....
They are textured and glossy and just the way I wanted them.
Some had a wonderful, primitive, organic look.
But then my friend came for a workshop and brought some of her beads.
They were so different than mine.
And so very lovely.
So I started playing with different finishing techniques.
I used one she did but mine did not turn out like hers.
So I tried a few other things.
I got some neat new looks.
I liked them in the pan.
They sat there for days.
I loved the blingy shine.
Which was so different than my other beads.
I was not sure what they would be.
One afternoon,I sat down and began knotting.
I am a huge fan of waxed linen cord for knotting.
And before I knew it, this sweet beachy wrap bracelet came to be.
Like I said, it is a change from my other beads.
And I am loving it.
I am also loving my hand forged clasps.
I love how substantial they are.
This bracelet is a double wrap.
I have a couple single wrap bracelets that I wear all the time.
They are actually very comfortable.
What do you make?
Thanks for stopping by....
