I was one of the lucky winners to participate with the lovely ladies of Art Jewelry Elements blog. This month it was Linda Landig's turn to supply the components to be used in the challenge. Here are Linda's beautiful clay components for this challenge.
Here is the one I received...
I forgot to take a picture of mine before I started creating my piece.
Those that create with clay, whether it is natural or polymer clay, always amaze me with the designs they can create. Linda uses natural clay for her designs.
Here is what I created to hang my pendant from...
I enjoy stitching Cellini spiral and I knew it would be a good stitch to show case the beautiful colors in the clay pendant Linda sent to me. So I went to my stash of seed beads and pulled out the colors that I felt best matched the colors in the pendant and got busy. As I was stitching the spiral I was thinking of what I would use to finish the necklace. As I was looking for glass pearls for Pearls, Pearls, Pearls, another blog hop I did this month, I came across these 10 mm teal and 3 mm purplish rose colored glass pearls, Bingo! they were a great match. I also through in some 4 mm light gold glass pearls and some Topaz crystals. Bodda Boom Bodda Bing! "Summer Daisies" was born.
Thank you to Linda and all the ladies associated with Art Jewelry Elements, I had a wonderful time playing and creating for this month's challenge.
Thank you to you for stopping by and visiting my blog post. Please leave a comment I like hearing from you.

Happy beading Y'all,
Hi Therese, The piece you received it beautiful! I love the spiral stitch you created for it. The overall necklace is fabulous! I've always wanted to try my hand at clay since I loved it in art class when I was young! Someday. I'm always amazed too by things that clay artists create. The paints are so diverse to work with too.ReplyDelete
Oh my love your Cellini Spiral...that is one that has caught my eye and I think I should try it. Beautiful creation!! Always love your work!ReplyDelete
oh Therese you know how I love your Celini! this is just gorgeous!ReplyDelete
No one does Cellini like you, Therese! Gorgeous spiral and colors and a very beautiful pendant. I like the dimension in the daisy.ReplyDelete
Beautiful piece Therese - the beadwork really sets the pendant off.ReplyDelete
Wow! You really rocked this! I tried Cellini spiral once.I got about 3 inches of it done and felt so overwhelmed that I quit! I feel about seed beaders that way you feel about clay smooshers! I love your necklace, its gorgeous. Thank you for playing along with us this month!!!ReplyDelete
What a gorgeous piece! Wow.ReplyDelete
oh my gosh! that spiral is amazing! The color and design look beautiful with linda's pendant. Great job.ReplyDelete
Thank you for reading AJE and participating in the design challenge.
Whoa! Cellini spiral is a stunner! I like the contrast between the spiral focal area and the simpler strung beads. What a lovely color palette!ReplyDelete
Beautiful! I also got a similar pendant and it is so cool to see the differences in how we designed around it! Lovely beadwork!ReplyDelete
Beautiful! what gorgeous bead weaving to set off that wonderful component!ReplyDelete
That's a stunning spiral... I love the colours!ReplyDelete
Really lovely, Therese! It sets off Linda's focal so well and shows your artistry. I've never done a Cellini, but I love them. One day...ReplyDelete
Therese, I love your necklace. I so want to learn the cellini spiral. Great job.ReplyDelete
What a beautiful necklace you made with Linda's pendant! I also admire people who can work with clay AND people who can do things with seed beads like that fabulous spiral stitch. Nice job!ReplyDelete
Therese, you chose the perfect stitch to showcase Linda's beautiful pendant! I love how it flows into the pearls, that was a great choice!ReplyDelete
Beautiful beadwork! You've drawn out the colors in the focal so nicely. The clean, uncluttered design really flatters Linda's daisy!ReplyDelete
Oh very pretty!!! Absolutely love the beadwork, you did a wonderful job putting it all together in to a beautiful necklace!ReplyDelete
Your necklace is such a happy summer one Therese—the rustic beauty of Linda's focal is beautifully complemented by the brighter colors and the lustrous peals. It reminds me of the bright colors of the many rainbow-hued wildflowers that grew beside my childhood home. And I'm so very envious of your bead-work—excellent work!ReplyDelete
Hi Therese, Your necklace is wonderful. It really draws me in to your beautiful design and color choices.ReplyDelete
