I am fond of statement pieces. Before I went pretty much full time into making my own poly clay beads, I was making funky wire wrapped bib style necklaces using an eclectic mix of beads, buttons (and even bronze age arrow head).
Before that I was dabbling into bib style bead embroidered pieces incorporating my poly clay beads, gemstones, resin pieces I made and other beads.
When I moved to Key West from the DC metro area, I was in love with my new location but a bit depressed about the lack of bead shopping opportunities (only one bead store and no classes other than basic!! So, I decided to get back into making my own poly clay beads and advancing my skills in bead making.
While I make a number of different style necklaces, I am still digging the bib style statement piece. And loving how lightweight they are with the poly clay beads.
