Cinco de Mayo Necklace




 In my last post, I shared my adventure of making a complex polymer cane using fabric as an inspiration and the design in the fabric was inspired from Mexican tile.  I decided to make a necklace to celebrate Cinco de Mayo, (May 5) http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cinco_de_Mayo and use some of the canes as beads.


It was fun to give the beads dimension by curing 2 halves, assembling the halves into a whole bead and creating a way to hang them.

Focal Bead
Front of Focul Bead
The focal bead looks like a pillow with the two convex squares over the four sides of skinny ovals
The mobius bead above the focal pillow bead is attached to the necklace with a lobster claw.

Each large bead is decorated front and back to give a finished interesting look to the necklace.  Polymer beads are lightweight and durable. 

The back of the beads shown in the first photo above.

Margaritas, mariachis, chips and salsa and a colorful one of a kind necklace should make May 5 pretty special!
