The necklace has been made by me using Polymer Clay. I blend complementary shades of clay to produce differently shaded areas, and then imprint the raw clay with a variety of textures. I make the bead shapes in raw clay and cut a shape from the textured clay to lay as a veneer on the bead. The bead is then baked to harden the clay.
After baking liquid gold coloured polymer clay is rubbed into the texture to highlight the shapes and lines, and a gold textured backing sheet is applied to each bead. The beads are then baked again to harden these additions.
Each bead is then carefully sanded to highlight areas of the pattern, and show off the golden clay additions in the texture. After sanding the bead is buffed to create a pleasing shine on the bead.
A further 6 round beads have been made using a complementary shade. These beads have been left with a matt finish and are used as spacers between the focal beads on the necklace.
The necklace is strung on gold coloured leather with sterling silver and silver plate findings.
The clasp is silver plated.
The necklace measures approximately 480 mm and the largest bead is 60 mm long.
