A collar necklace by the artist. Many of the beads have layers of translucent clay with canes layered on top. This is a special collections of my favorite beads. My Beads start out as little lumps of colored clay. I then custom mix my colors to create my artist palette. The clay is rolled into tubes of designs called canes. These canes are sliced paper thin and transferred to my clay beads. The canes form the designs and patterns. Each color is a separate piece of clay gentle rolled onto the bead. Polymer clay is a low fire clay that cures at 265 degrees. My beads are then lightly buffed and left with a natural finish. They are lightweight and durable and the colors will not fade or wear off.
