Red & Black Passion

About this design:

I am proud of this one, my first attempt at making PMC beads! I really like how this turned out. I used red and black 'fimo' clay and combined these beads and pendant with gemstones. I really liked making it so I'll surely do it again :-)


Black Onyx (faceted and tube), Coral, swarovski crystals, PMC beads and pendant, seed beads, gunmetal clasp

    I really like this, is the PMC, polymer clay or the metal clay? I have only seen the metal clay in silver, gold and copper metals but truthfully I am not that familiar with all of the options. Did you make the pendant and beads yourself? They are really lovely, a very striking color combination.

    Oeps, I mean that it is polymer clay! Thanks ladies :-) Yes, I did make the dual colored beads, the larger red ones and the pendant myself, the other ones are gemstones. It was fun and I found it very relaxing :-)
