One of my clay related resolutions for 2012 is to get way way more into textured clay. I used to make a few of these little bumpy beads which are basically texture / sculpted versions of my regular beads. I finally got the urge to create a few more including doing a few on flat back pendants or bracelet beads. The reverse side is lightly textured and the whole deal is antiqued.
Here’s a few that haven’t gotten used yet. I have plans though!
This little pendant and nugget bead set got turned into a necklace and earrings. I added lampwork by Cheryl Harris, some tiny amethyst, a few pearls and lots of antiqued metal bits and chain.
