The photograph in Acacia’s latest catalog of black matte onyx pendant and pearls is what triggered my new addiction to polymer clay. I had to make it with paper beads! I don’t know if I want to spend the $49.00 I’m sure it is all worth it but I thought I can make it using black fimo clay.
I used Japanese origami paper and cut it into 1/4 inch by 8 inch strips
I strung a 3mm swarovski on a head pin and the paper bead then connect them to a chain.
The calla lily is my first attempt with polymer clay, I made a mistake of not sanding it, I can see smudges of my thumbprints on it, I will do better next time. For now, I’m happy with the result.
