Polymer Clay Necklaces

Now that the dog is gone things have almost returned to normal.  Corny is back to her old self but Fritz is still a little nervous.... looks around corners and makes a mad dash for the basement if he hears the slightest noise.... .

Here is photo of Holly napping on the couch.... she is not suppose to be up there but her hips were hurting and she couldn't get comfy on the floor, I didn't have the heart to make her get down.  I have a throw on the couch because of the cat hair.  When I got my new couch the plan was to teach the cats to stay off of it... their plan was to ignore my plan..... guess who won.  So my pretty aqua couch is covered with a brown throw.

Corny was greatly relieved when Holly went home, and has return to her favorite spot on the back of the couch right above where Holly was napping.

Fritz usually naps  on the other end of the couch but he doesn't like the dog smell so he has exiled himself to the daybed in the backroom down stairs.  For some reason he always turns down the corner of the quilt, I guess it's more comfy that way.  Heather and I straighten it up when we clean the cat hair but he folds it down and curls up in the corner.  It is hard to get a good photo of a black cat. See the white toes on his back feet?

Now here are the necklaces:

First is a pendant I made a long time ago, I added the wire bail and strung it with  glass tube beads, round Kashgar garnet beads and copper spacer beads and a copper hook clasp. There is a Swarovski rhinestone in the center that doesn't show well in the photo.  I have a top the same shade of purple so I may have to keep this one.

Second is a pendant I made in february  during the Thing a Day challenge on PCC. I  made a woven wire bail and strung it on silk ribbon wrapped with colored wire.

Third is another pendant from the TAD challenge.  I used gun metal 18 gauge wire, black agate beads, yellow 28 gauge wire and yellow seed beads to make the links.

The next two are Kathi scrap pendants that I posted a couple weeks ago. I strung them on black buna cord.

I'm not sure when I made the pendant on this last one, last year sometime most likely. I used blue coin beads and carnelian beads on copper wire to make the links.

That's it for today.  Stay tuned for more necklaces, I'm on a roll.

Thanks for stopping by.


  1. Beautiful necklaces, and beautifully photographed too!!

    Cats love to 'ignore the plan' LOL!! :) Sweet kitties, and Holly looks so happy napping on the couch! Thanks for sharing the pics!

  2. I feel for your poor black kitty! :) Probably still a bit disoriented about the whole thing ...especially the dog smell :))) Holly is a beautiful dog!

    Great pendants! The ones in the 3rd,4th and 5th photo are exceptionally fantastic!! I think #3 is my absolute favorite :)

  3. Beej, it's a wonder your head doesn't explode for all the great ideas you get. were really going to teach the cats to obey? :::runs off hysterical::::: :D

  4. BJ ~ First off I must comment on the picture of Holly. She looks so regal. What is her breed? Next I must say your pendants are fantastic! And third ~ I love the names Corny and Fritz!

  5. Thank you Trina. Cat's can be a pain, but they are good company too.... so I guess I'll keep'em.

    Thank you Mary #3 is my favorite too. I have a top that it matches really well.

    Lol Moe, sometimes I think my head has exploded and is as empty as a gourd!!

    I agree Sandy , Holly does look quite regal, she is pretty spoiled but she is a good dog. She lives with 3 cats at home so she doesn't pay any attention to mine but poor Fritz doesn't know that.

  6. I love the purple necklace, also the blue pendant is great looking!
