Clay Art Necklaces
I just love this
style of art and wanted to make something really curvacious so I started with
an armature of 16 gage sterling silver wire with leaves flowing gracefully
up the wire and a large long petalled flower and bud, studded with freshwater
pearls. The center of the flower is a large faceted Amethyst, while the leaf
on the right has a stem of tiny glass beads and it comes with a 16 1/2'' silver
I was also inspired by the clay work of Christi Friesen.
Size: 3'' x 2''

I really enjoyed
making this necklace. I set the clay leaves on a copper armature and added
flowers with tiny crystal centers. The pond is a piece of agate encased in
a clay setting, I think the flowers set it off well as it looked too bare

Jasper as the colours work so well. I added lots of glass beads, Rainforest
Jasper rounds, the dangly leaf on the left is Tigereye. I added lots of copper
beads in different shapes including a little copper butterfly. The chains
are a warm coloured vintage brass. It's fastened with a copper toggle clasp.

the hand made floral lampwork beads were made by a young lady from the USA,
silver tube and other beads and Swarovski crystals and finished with a silver

Inspired by the
film and book Avatar, I was intrigued by the colours of the flora and fauna,
so this is my vision translated into a necklace. The creatures and plants were
sculpted by me in Premo clay, which glows with iridescence from the mica powders
I used, which is not easy to photograph to show its beauty. I linked everything
together with many different gemstones, crystal, glass and pearl beads it fastens
with a hand made toggle clasp above the focal.

formations. A sculptural pendant, the tree has rooted itself on top of the cliff
