This necklace has been waiting a couple of months to be finished. All it needed was the clasp. *sigh* I couldn't decide what sort of clasp it needed. I finally ended up with an inexpensive copper clasp that is fairly understated.
The next time I do this sort of necklace, I want to think about the clasp at the beginning. Make it more part of the design.
I am please with how this turned out. I have done other free-form items, and some better than others. I guess it's the nature of "free-form". I enjoy making these, even if they are time consuming.
I am thinking of trying Bead embroidery to make a necklace or bracelet. I have Lacey's Stiff Stuff (I think that's what it is called) and some suede scraps. Now, all I need is the time.
First I have a polymer clay project or two (or 100) I need to be finishing. Perhaps I should spend less time on the Facebook games? Gads, I'm such a game addict (Don't even ask me about Lineage).
Anyway, here is my first free-form project, with a doughnut from my 3rd (I think) batch of polymer clay beads.
Okay, time to walk away from the keyboard, get some sleep and then do something creative in the morning!
