Something Old Something New



Like half of the UK I have been inside today trying to stay warm. While I was home I had a look through my bead stash and found a necklace I'd half finished last year. It features a beautiful organic focal bead by Sarah Hornick suspended from a textured antiqued fine silver disk by myself set off against Czech beads I found in the shop :) All I need now is a nice clasp and I can get it finished!

Speaking of clasps I made another C Clasp to go with these beautiful beads (one of the perks of having your studio in a bead shop :D). Its easier to make a C Clasp in Art Clay Silver than Bronze Clay as it does not spread during firing like the bronze can - so I think this works quite well. One for the summer I think!

Oh I like that idea! I once finished of a necklace with two huge ornamental lobster claws . . . funky findings are the key.
