Bowl of Beads & a Necklace

Last year I took part in a Coaster swap on Polymer Clay Central.  Here's a photo of the coasters.

I used the left over clay to make canes.  Here is the Bowl of Beads that I made with the canes.

Click on the photos for a closer look.

Close up of beads.  I really like the way they turned out.

I  don't do much in  green, not sure why, I like green. I found a green cane in my stash and used it to make the pendant and beads, then added wire for the necklace.  I like it.

Another view of the necklace.  I like asymmetrical so I did a long bead on one side and a wired piece on the other.

I am working on a BIG pendant with another cane that I made from coaster left overs... it keeps growing and growing.... should be finished soon.

Thanks for stopping by.


  1. those coasters are very funky! The left overs made good beads too. I took part in that swap but didn't get one of yours. Amazing how different they all were.

  2. Love all those beads!! Beautiful work, those coasters are really cool!

  3. I love the beads and the necklace, nice work. Hugs.

  4. Hi Cara, I didn't get one of yours either. If I remember correctly yours arrived late, after most had been mailed out ... good thing Leigh has some extras! That was a fun swap.

  5. Thanks you Trina and thank you too Jackie!! Hugs to both of you. Beej

  6. Wow, when you make beads you really make beads!

  7. Do you have directions for those beautiful coasters?
