Black Calla Lily Pendant

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.
