Beads Of Clay Pendant Swap -- The jewelry

Recently Lisa Boucher and I became swap partners in the Beads of Clay  pendant swap.
She sent me the lovely pendant above and I made a necklace with it.
Close up of Lisa's pendantt.  I used an orange sherbet Russian Spiral tube which I made and wire wrapped carnelian beads to capture the feel of the pendant.  For me it seemed to need those colors.

I use a Vintaj toggle clasp and Vintaj wire to wrap the beads.

 I also made a bracelet with the four small beads she sent along with quite a few of my own beads.
This bracelet can also be worn as a necklace.  Lorelei Eurto inspired this knotting design.

You can see more of Lisa Boucher's beads and pendants on her website. Thank you Lisa for sending me such lovely ceramic beads and pendant.  It has been fun getting to know you and your work.


  1. Mary, that bright orange is stunning againts the pendant. Very summer. I love the knotting and versatility of the bracelet/necklace combination.

  2. Thanks so much for writing in LeAnn. It was a fun project and got me to try some new ideas.
