Southwestern Fantasy

Not Canes but they came from canes!

I like to use as much as I can from my clay and sometimes just a few lentil beads can become something more than the cane itself.

I liked these beads so much that I kept them for myself and I didn't follow my usual varnishing procedure and just left them in their baked state. There was just something that lent them to stay matte. I combined them with more earth beads by adding dyed bone beads and some potato pearls.

Czech crystal beads add shine and glamour to the necklace. It isn't "heavy" but it is a piece with some weight to it.

Finally! I have my project board cleaned off.
Off to create more beads!
