This piece was inspired by the ‘Cascade’ Necklace by Laura Tabakman. I loved the simplicity of the polymer clay discs she used and the organic feel of the piece.
Guessing how she made them, I used copper, pearl, translucent and black clays to make a blended bull’s eye cane, from which I cut the slices that I thinned and stretched to size.
Once cured, I used copper-coloured artistic wire to ‘string’ the ‘beads’ loosely on to a choker wire.
They are interspersed with small polymer beads I made from the left-over scraps.
The wires rotate freely so the piece has movement, which I really like to incorporate into my necklaces if possible.

WOW, this necklace has a wow factor to it. I have never worked with Polymer clay and admire people who can make such gorgeous pieces out of it. This necklace with the right outfit would turn heads for sure. Very very nice.
An absolutely striking design – and I agree, “WOW!”
Fantastic use of polymer clay and artistic wire.
Thanks for posting this incredible piece here!
