I have been working on a special project - a black and silver necklace
This is the necklace with a black bead
This is with the silver bead option. I didn't have a silver bead, so painted a white one with my acrylic paints and varnished it with a metallic glaze.
Large bead option
I really wanted a larger bead, and they are impossible to find - well ones with big enough holes to go over the ribbon - so I made this one from Cloud Clay, painted with black acrylic, and varnished. It takes a while as you have to let the clay dry for 24 hours. Fortunately the painting takes less drying time.
and finally I made a box for it. Decorated with same ribbon as the necklace, and using my favourite dies, I cut out the flower and leaves from some black and silver marbled card I created a few weeks ago.
