Some Like It Hot - clay necklaces

 
 

For the Debonaire collection, I made three polymer clay necklaces, each different in color and shape and each inspired by a different 1950s movie. 

The title says is all. The hot red beads are handmade and  following that curvy, denty shape I am obsessed with when I put my hands onto polymer clay. I wanted to add two rows of beads, and actually did, but it is heavy as is, so I discarded the second row.

 

For the second one, I was inspired by the classic Grease, which I loved as a girl and still do. For this one I played with mustard and dark fuchsia and somehow I am quite drawn to this particular combination this summer and quite eager to dig into crochet and use it.


 
That's all for today. I'll see you on Friday!

The first picture is awesome. I looove the skirt Eva is wearing and the matching top and the beautiful necklace. This is picture-postcard-quality, this should be front page of a glossy magazine! You are so talented - I'm in absolute awe!

I didn't know that you made polymer clay beads as well. they look gorgeous - particularly the red ones. I just bought red ceramic beads in organic shapes like this which are heavy but fun. Yours looks much lighter compared to it.

Thank you Marjan. The skirt is mine. We had to pin it at several places so as to fit Eva. I am so glad the photos turned out the way I imagined them. Thank you on the sweetest comment! I am honored!

I started making paper and clay beads in high school, being involved in a school art project and it has stuck with me. It' s good to turn to beas making when you can't find the exact beads you need for a project. Do you agree?

The red necklace you made is so pretty and perfect for any outfit!

Really beautiful! I can't tell you how many times I've bought clay to make something with but by the time I actually decide to do it, the clay is so dried out it's not even salvageable with water. :/

Thank you Tammy! I don't let that happen.Jacob usually uses up a small portion of a whole block for his Art classes, so I see to it - make beads or plates/ bowls for succulents. Hate to throw a good block of clay!

Your polymer beads are lovely, and that fuchsia and mustard combo is fantastic! I have a link up party on Thursdays called Creative Compulsions. I’d like to invite you to link up!
