Here's what I made…Gaea I was hoarding—the colors and points on the stars matched my Tattered Butterfly Wing beads perfectly.
Gaea, and some ceramic rondelles from Michael's.
Gaea. But these wobbly pebble beads here are my very favorite addition to the necklace—they are my very first polymer clay beads! I made them years back—before I even owned a pasta machine—they were entirely hand mixed and hand shaped. I had actually used them in a few previous necklaces, but had taken them each apart as my style changed. Now I think they're finally home at last!
Gaea's pendant. I tried a few variations before settling on this bail with seed beads and wire. It was the most simplistic, but I really like how it adds a little detail, but not too much that it distracts from the pendant.
And to finish things off, I wired several seed beads onto the clasp.
I hope you enjoyed following along with the creative process involved in making my new necklace!
