A Wirework Interlude
The wire is a gorgeous pink gold color and the beads are just a mix of items from my extensive "stash." Of coures, in the end I just couldn't resist adding some polymer clay so I made these two little birds. Making the chain was somewhat tedious, but also rewarding. And I also made the clasp. A pretty glass drop adds a nice finishing touch near the clasp.
Diane at Basically Beads liked this piece so much that I'll be teaching a workshop on it next month. And I liked it so much that I made two more. These are fun! and a great way to use bead odds and ends. The colored wires now on the market provide many exciting possibilites!
