One of my latest polymer clay pendants. Everything is clay except the 3 round metal bead spacers and the face itself which was cut out from a color copy of a painting from the Middle Ages. I used black clay and accented it with silver and gold mica powders. You can get the most dramatic results with black clay when using mettalic and pearlescent powders.
Voila! Behold the mighty Luna-Bean necklace. That is the title I've named this piece whose polymer clay beads were painstakingly made by hand by me. I've included a fun pic of the loose beads themselves before they were strung up and the finished necklace. I call the beads "luna-beans" because they remind me of colorful beans that have small craters in them like the moon. Right now I'm preparing to post items to my Etsy store and I'm being totally anal-retentive about the pictures I should include. I'm not a trained photographer so I'm kind of at a loss over how to present my items. Anyway, some items should be up within a week or so. My Etsy shop is here but it is currently un-stocked.
