I made 1 more necklace for Mary for Christmas. When I was going through my Mothers beads to sell, Mary fell in love with some ivory carved Indian tribal beads. I told her, that I had to sell them to make money to feed by polymer clay habit. So she forgot about them. One day I was playing around with some light cream color polymer clay and my knitting needles and all of a sudden I had made beads to look like the ones I sold of my Mothers. These beads turned out great. I decided to try another bead that my Mother had. It was a long slim Bead, again to look like ivory and it had long carvings in the bead. Both of these beads were combined with a few glass beads. It made a beautiful necklace. Mary LOVED it!!!
The inspiration for this project not only came from my Mothers beautiful beads that I sold but also from Cindy Lietz on Polymer Clay Tutor Library Videos. You can find her and her videos at
