Black Hawaiian Floral


About this design:

I have this friend who creates some really beautiful beads working in polymer clay. I asked her for a custom order of black/white floral beads. This is what she made and I love them.

Components:

Three beautiful focal beads are mixed with Czech crystals rondelle of milky white and clear crystal. The tiny spacers are smoke grey glass and the black are 6mm round. A very simple shiny silver clasp and toggle.

    Wow..It just hit me that the floral beads are clay!
    How does she DO that? Her work is outstanding and your bracelets are lovely. You 2 are quite the team. You certainly have a flair for accenting the focals,and bringing her beads to life.

    Wow! They’re clay, I thought they were metallic lamp-worked beads. They have a 3D look. Fantastic beads and you made them pop.
