Easy Stringing

A few weeks ago I visited Allegory Gallery. It's a lovely little gallery, a sweet bead shop, and they have an Etsy shop too.
While I was there I purchased this sweet clay owl.
The plan was to use some copper and beads from my stash to make a necklace.
I guess I'm out of practice, because I couldn't get my fingers to do what my brain was thinking. I just could not get the copper wire to bend the right way.
So instead of doing the wire wrapping technique with beads on hand, I ordered some clay beads with larger holes from www.etsy.com/shop/AtHomeInTaos
Love their beads!
I strung everything on a leather cord. No wire required…
Keeping it simple.

Have an easy day!

  3. Cute. I love the muted, earthy colors, suggestive of natural pigments.
