I've been making lots of polymer clay beads to use in necklaces this week, hopefully to give as extra little Christmas presents. I've made them before with Elizabeth, but this time I thought I'd try and incorporate some different beads too.

I used some wooden geometric beads, which I left natural, but I might try spraying or painting some next time too. I also used some some copper tube beads in a few of the necklaces. These were a little trickier to put together as they are so light in comparison to the clay beads. To keep the tube beads off centre, I just tied some little knots in the wax cord where I wanted them to sit, that way the heavier beads didn't fall to the centre of the necklace.

I quite like how they turned out, especially with the combination of the metal, wood and clay together. I think I might have to keep one or two for myself!
