Art Bead Scene Sept Challenge

Maine Beach Cabin

Pendant handmade from earthenware clay by me. I found this seaweed on the beach when we were in Maine this summer and brought it home in a container of very cold seawater which I refrigerated until I could make the mold from it. This is the pendant I made. The lines of seaweed made me think of the log cabin quilt pattern in this month's ABS Challenge. I used several of the colors in the quilt that I like and made up this necklace. The wire wrapped beads are also made by me from ceramic clay.
