I was so excited to join the Artisan Clay design team, since I have been a LONG time fan!!!!!
Kristie was so creative about the challenge. She posted pictures on facebook of the beads and we could each pic one for our project. I picked one from this picture...one without the loops.
I thought long and hard about it. I know I would typically make a necklace in this style (see below) with a bead like that. Kinda like a collage of focal beads.
Here is something else I made using a new style of Artisan Clay bead, along with one of my Artisan Accents bronze hobnail donuts. I just love how it turned out. The contrast of texture is so appealing! I must get some more of those flower pendants with the glass inside!
I can't wait to see what everyone else made. Hop on over to Artisan Clay for the list of blogs.
