Finally I crawled out of the creative void I was wallowing in and found some new inspiration. If you couldn't tell I love all things ethnic and the funkier the better. So I spent some time pouring over pics of ancient beads, binge watching old movies while I conditioned clay and absorbed atmosphere. The resulting beads are fun and certainly funky! The tribal pendants have a carved wood look with a mysterious circle inscribed on the front. The pudgy ladies each hold a bit of ceramic mosaic tile and eventually they will be affixed to a copper backing for use as a pendant. The feathers are fashioned into components for use as earrings or necklace parts. They come already wired with either recycled African glass beads or bits of blue green sea glass. I will be listing these on my etsy site next week.
