Black and Gold Floral Pendant Necklace

Image Description
Black and gold floral pendant necklace:

This high-contrast, one of a kind necklace was made using a combination of polymer clay and old jewelry parts as cabochons. Striking gold and greenish crystals on pewter plowers stand out on black polymer clay.
I pressed the cabochons into the clay before baking, removed them, and secured them onto the cured clay with epoxy. The flowers are matched by topaz colored crystal bi-cone and round black glass beads. The pendant measures 1.5 inches wide by 1 1/3 inches. It is also coated with a semi-gloss polyurethane in front to deepen the black.

This necklace is strung on nylon coated jewelry wire and measures 18 inches, adjustable up to 21 inches. It closes with a plated lobster claw clasp and chain.
