White lariat necklace of opalite glass, rock crystal
This wonderful necklace is a lariat of white and crystal with a central gorgeous polymer clay bead.
This necklace is all white except for the central polymer clay bead. The white beads are opalite glass which have a pinky blue glow against black, rock crystal tubes, creamy freshwater pearls and tiny white-lined glass beads.
The polymer clay bead was made by Catherine Steele. It is covered by gorgeous roses in a soft purpley blue, small white flowers and vignetted green leaves.
The incredible floral pattern hasn't been painted onto the bead; it has been created using the millefiori technique with polymer clay. Patterns are made in canes which are rolled and stretched. Thin slices are taken from the cane to cover a bead base. Beads are eventually tumble-sanded and then buffed to a high shine.
