Black and white makes such a striking statement and I am ready for a statement! Experimenting with combining black and white polymer clay, I stacked alternating layers into stripes and swirled them. Then I cut the swirls into little pieces and compressed the pieces into a one-inch ball in my hands. Sometimes I cut those balls into 4 pieces and reassembled them into another one-inch ball.
I combined my finished beads with volcanic stone beads about the same size. It became obvious that I created two basic designs and they would not go together. Some of the black and white balls reminded me of zebra stripes and some were much more abstract. I had to make a decision! Two statements - one now and one for the future!
|I used smaller black matt beads for the back of the necklace with a silver toggle.|
|And this is the happy result!|
