I made a necklace sketch and went to the studio to get out the beads for it. In the process of searching for one of the beads, I got inspired with materials for 4 other necklaces. “Oh look, this will go with…” When that happens, I just go with it. My attention span is better served by making whatever I have already found the materials for.
I had a Dana Swisher ceramic face bead sitting on my bead table, and when I got out a box of jasper and agate, I saw these big rounds that would go with it perfectly! I also got out some ovals I thought could complement the design.
I first put some of the smaller ovals at the front, but I wasn’t happy with that. I decided the big rounds looked best around the face. I did put a few at the back near the beautiful bronze Saki Silver clasp. I included a teal polymer clay swirly design bead by Staci Louise Smith for a nice pop of color.
I am in love with this necklace. So much wonderful fun and beads that just get to be themselves.
