|Humblebeads Purple and Green Polymer Clay Bead|
Heather Powers of Humblebeads Bead Soup Mix Challenge is an easy one--create a piece of jewelry with at least one Humblebead in the mix. I took this as an opportunity to redo a necklace that I wasn't happy with and combine a new lotus flower ceramic that I just purchased from Jenny Davies-Reazor with a pretty purple and green polymer clay bead by Humblebeads that I had been hoarding.
|This is the necklace that I redesigned.|
I redid this purple rabbit necklace because I thought the jade purple rabbit was too small for the necklace. When I redid the necklace I got rid to the 3 silver hearts and used lavender Irish waxed linen thread instead of beading wire to give it a more casual look. I also added some amethyst beads to the necklace. The purple Humblebeads bead was the perfect color for the purple, pink and yellow ceramic.

I replaced an inexpensive store bought clasp at the neckline with a sterling silver clasp that I made to give the necklace additional handmade artisan component. I kept Marsha Neal's pretty silk ribbon. I think it is a perfect gift for someone who practices yoga. The lotus has spiritual symbolism among many cultures. I created this lotus necklace especially to add to my yoga collection.
I feel that I now have a true art statement necklace. What are your thoughts?
