About this design:

Wanted to play with gold & yellow, and I ended up making these 1"barrel beads. I'm not sure if I'm done with this, I really like how it wears, lite, simple. I'm not wanting to add another strand..?? Yes, my "diva" cat Bear, wanted in the picture!


Polymer Clay, glass seed beads, copper chain & clasp.

    Interesting beadies. Nice color combination. Love the kitty. She reminds me of a panther. My daughter found a male (grew to be huge)like this when she lived in Myrtle Beach Sc. His name was Spooky. He used to play hide and seek with her and chase her around the house. They had a good time together.
