This is such a stunning piece of jewelry and I love the purple colors in the beads and the pendent is beautiful and anyone who sees it would never know it is made from clay. I have never made beads with clay but always wanted to try this so this is going on my list of to do's. I can see these necklaces done out of different colors too. They will make a beautiful gift too. If I can get the necklace right I may even try a bracelet and earrings too. What a great set this would be. Thanks for super tutorial.

So you hit upon my favorite color, knowing that would make me stop and check this out. I love purple in all of its glorious shades. From lavender to Concord grape purple. And I love to work with clay. This is going to be on my to do list. Clay is so easy to work with. You literally can't make a mistake. I have stumbled upon beautiful combinations of colors by pure accident. Thank you so much for this inspiring project.

This is a beautiful color combination and technique, it can lend itself to thousands of color combinations, shapes and applications..... It also took the "fear" out of using polymer clay for the first time too !! I really loved the lentil beads done this way, just beautiful....thank you for sharing :)))
