Mokume Gane: Turquoise Waves Necklace
by Lorraine Vogel.
(Delray Beach, Florida, USA)
I created this pendant from polymer clay using the mokume gane technique — layers of clay are stamped, then shaved, revealing a pattern. I then reached for my (extensive!) bead stash of turquoise-colored beads.
The flat beads look like turquoise, but are actually magnesite. I like the contrast of the curved pendant, wavy lines and rectangle beads.
