The necklace strand has a series of freshwater pearls, Muscovite, goldstone, and seed beads. The finishing touch is a copper lobster claw clasp and a copper chain for adjustable length.

Polymer Clay Landscape Cabachon
A polymer clay cabachon is the central focus of this pendant. I used several different seed beads and Czech crystals to stitch the beading around the clay piece. A single Amazonite drop hangs from the bottom. The pendant is backed with a soft seafoam green Ultrasuede.

The necklace was stitched with the spiral rope method using earthy brown seed beads and light Spring green beads as the core. The ends were finished with sterling silver bead caps and toggle clasp.

Necklace length: approximately 22 inches
Pendant length: 4.5 inches from the top of the bail to the bottom of the Amazonite drop.
