March Challenge Necklace
Here is a little necklace I made for Art Bead Scene's March Challenge. I have been playing around with polymer clay, making rough, rustic, primitive style pendants and beads. I love to watch the "magic" happen with the layering, texturizing and painting. The pendant and focal bead are two examples. The two fabulous ceramic "eyes" are beads by Mary Ann Carroll. There are some of my chunky ceramic beads, earth stones, copper and glass. I curled up a clasp to finish it off. I really was inspired by all the color in this month's challenge painting by Marc Franz. A woodland setting with sleeping deer. So peaceful and earthy. Quietude amidst the wonderful natural chaos of color and texture that one finds in such awesome spaces such as an untouched mountain forest.
