New handmade necklace

Hi there!
Remember my try at a new kind of bead which I posted a few days ago?
Here is the necklace I made with it. Notice the link that matches (again) the clasp - or vice versa...
Again copper wire and this time genuine leather cord. And the black ring is also polymer clay.

And a bonus for you (or for me??? as it was fun making this!) - a collage I've made using an online soft I discovered a couple of days ago:

Necklaces with my hand made beads

Hi! I'll be short today.
I only want to share a few pictures. First, pictures of one of the necklaces I told you about in the previous post. Now I can show you the clasp, too. I made it from copper wire and hammered it. See how it matches the pendant? Small red bead all over!

And here is the second necklace. Polymer clay mokume gane - salvaged from my latest disaster... It is interchangeable. This means that you can simply take the pendant off and put another one in its place!

I've got some 4-5 more necklaces. So keep coming back!

Hand Made Beads

After last week's disaster I decided... - among other things (like trying another type of white polymer clay, as well as experimenting with alternative ways of curing i.e. boiling on the stove or in the microwave) - well... I'm considering to only make what I like. Hand made beads that I like, for myself, for me to wear or only to enjoy, and don't care anymore if most of the people don't like them. This would make them more difficult so sell but since I haven't made a fortune out of this business so far, it won't make any difference.
So here we go! A necklace I made some months ago but is not my #1:

This is just a try at a different technique and painting

This one here is one of the last week's salvaged and yet usable bead:

This is waiting to be turned into an earring to match my favorite necklace:

And in the end, let me introduce you to some steampunk:

Hope I haven't scared you away!!!
See you next time.
