This is my third entry for the Art Bead Scene challenge this month.
It is made of polymer clay attached to a silver-plated bail and glowing with a surface treatment of gold and silver acrylic. The wire work is a mix of burgundy, silver and gold wire twisted into loops and adorned with a mix of vintage, glass and semi-precious beads as well.
My design is an attempt to highlight but not overpower the focal bead. I tried to keep the wire work asymmetrical and yet cohesive and balanced.
