I love mixes of beads that are similar but a variety of colors, shapes, designs.  I also love things that are rustic like these clay beads with irregular designs and color wearing off in places.

tbt-claybeadcloseI got these beads so long ago I can’t remember where.  I suspect I made this necklace after taking a knotting class many years ago.  That goes to show you what happens when you don’t practice; I still consider myself a beginning knotter!

tbt-claylongThis necklace is very long, although I almost never get to wear it that way.  I prefer it long but generally wrap it twice as a necklace so it doesn’t get ripped off my neck in the course of my daily duties at work. It’s fun to see that some of my designs have stood up to my own changing tastes.
