I made these… all parts handmade. This past fall I was inspired to make some pendant necklaces out of stoneware clay. I love this process as I can stamp textures or meaningful scriptures and encouragement into the clay. Its a new platform to display my work that I had never considered before. Until now I have hung them on suede necklaces but this weekend I put my brush to work and mixed my love for watercolors and silk painting to make these unique watercolor strands for my pendants. They are a soft rolled silk strands, hand sewn and hand painted, I love how the colors come to life and add a softness and playfulness. I also opened a glaze kiln this weekend, I will post more pics later… plus I added a link from my long abandoned flicker account. Lots of new pendants and meaningful pieces. I am truly thankful for this opportunity to create and make such personal works. Enjoy!
