Polymer Clay - Winter Pod - NeckpieceIf the mere thought of winter can be invoked by jewelry, this neck piece does just that!  Out of the collection of polymer pod beads I made recently, I chose just one polymer component for this piece. The grey polymer clay pod dangling at the bottom is accented with a bit of pearlescent powder and scattered dabs of white and black acrylic paint…I think it works very well with the other components! A patinaed fine silver metal clay lotus bottom sits at center and is joined by a wire-wrapped length of 16-gauge hammer-texted sterling wire to a cast fine silver twig. There is a lot of movement as each component swings from a balled-end of silver wire. I like the length of this pendant on the neck ring, but I have also worn the pendant on a twenty inch linked sterling chain and it looks great! It is the perfect accompaniment to my winter wardrobe!
