neutral nuggets

 Beautiful mix of neutral colors in this multistrand mix of polymer beads, bone, wood, glass, 
and seed beads. And I love the little primitive birdie clasp almost as much as my handmade, hand painted polymer tubes into which I have gathered the strands.

crochet, Czech glass, fossilized coral agate, polymer ...

and paper beads were used in my new multi-strand necklaces.
I just love the delicate lacy look of the simple beaded crochet strands wound around the agate
and paper beads.

Black and White

I was asked to make some B/W things.
So after much measuring, cutting, rolling, and varnishing I came up with this. 
She loved it! It is simple but striking and goes with so much; especially Winter's
darker palette. 

While I was at it I made a bunch of red beads to combine with creamy beige and white bone, wood and some rustic stone-like polymer beads I made a few months ago.

Chunky multi-strand necklace coming soon to
