Necklace & Earring Set Inspired by: The Storm, John Anster Fitzgerald

So I decided to make the second Necklace (& Earrings!) for the Art Bead Scene December Challenge. =^.^= This one also has my own polymer clay and gemstone bead as a focal point.

I focused on the ice blues and purples in this painting for my jewelry design. I used amethyst cubes and rounds, blue opalite, and sodalite. The focal has a mother of pearl cabochon, which to me represents the lacy wings in the painting. Copper findings.

The focal bead is handmade by myself from polymer clay using my fingers and a ton of patience. Each petal and leaf is formed by hand, and gently placed. Vines are hand-rolled. The mother of pearl cabochon is held in place by vines and leaves. Then the entire bead was coated with polymer clay sealant. =^.^=

If you're interested in custom flower beads with or without cabochons, you can contact me at or . While you're at it, visit my ArtFire shop. LOTS of handmade goodies, with the current emphasis on earrings of all descriptions. Plus, everything is on SALE this weekend! Time to stock up for the holidays! ;)
