Remember those shipwreckdandy turban beads I raved about? Look at them now! Squeee!!! I actually had to cut the back of one of them down to make it flat enough for this, it was a whole ordeal. But it's like they were born to end up in the above construction. Three white circles- pearl, poly, naga chonch. Sigh.
I used some already here, along with a carved bone bead that I used a crackle finish on just cuz I was experimenting with crackle. Grungy enough to balance out a buncha bling.
I used some of the crack pastels on this pendant and also below.
I've also decided I prefer to use my polymer beads myself instead of selling them. I don't know. Photographing and listing them is a lot of time for the small amount of money you can charge, and I also feel like I make good use of my results in my own work. Of course, if any of you guys want to purchase any of these polybabies, just etsy convo me. That's right, I'll sell my own babies!!
Oh and those NuminosityBeads double headpins I told you about? Voi-la. Above with a 4ophelia enamel drop.
Here I had the wacky idea to make cord hoops. I don't know but I just love them.
So I made another pair with the findings made from double-headed rosey copper pins. And a cut coin from Uruguay.
Now talk about balanced asymmetry. There's even a tiny baltic amber on one side perfectly balanced with a teeny polymer bead on the other which shipwreck sent me. I even like the wire findings I made at the top. Gotta make more of my own earring findings.
Protect the Mothers.
Oh and that piece from my post about setting coins?
With this amazing chunk of pyrite from Uruguay, my own handmade chain, etc.Even made this little guy here.
