Bib Necklaces - Ocean Waves and Volcanic Eruptions by Terri Wlaschin  - featured on Jewelry Making Journal

I tend to like things on the funky side. I think that is why organic pieces are so compelling for me. These two bib style pieces were made after I had fun putting lots of holes in my clay.

After doing that, the base piece was too flat for me so I decided to throw it a curve by adding another curved piece on top of it.

But that wasn’t enough either. I wanted it to have more flow so I added some beads tied to cording and away I went.

  • Fabulous mixed media pieces, Terri! I love your choices of clay, fibers, and beads. These necklaces feel earthy, funky, and artistic, all at the same time. 🙂

    You’re right, these are both funky and fun to wear (I assume)! Just the different color choices make a world of difference too. What’s the necklace part of the black and red one? Looks like leather rolled up?

  • Michele C. says:

    I’m curious to know what kind of clay you used in these very funky, unusual pieces. I love them!! I tried something similar using pieces of tree bark which I embellished with crystal flat-backs. I had some trouble drilling the wood (sometimes it breaks during the drilling process.
