The necklace is titled “Japanese Lanterns” and also features a polymer clay pendant created by me using an image transfer technique. The image depicted is of a vintage Japanese woodcut. I was drawn to the colorful graphics, but it sat on my worktable for weeks while I searched for the perfect gemstones to complete the necklace design. Beads I picked up had too much cherry red in them, and I felt it needed something in the Chinese red family of orange-reds, or possibly a chameleon bead that would adapt to more than one color palette. I knew I found that when I saw the Salmon/Peridot Czech glass rondelles! They are perfect accents and bring out the reds in the pendant.
Thank you so much!
