My new Earthy Organics collection was inspired by my love of nature and plants. I experimented with some textural plaid designs in the Organic Orbs. The colors I used are rich earth tones, reminiscent of soft mossy greens, bark browns & turquiose stone. Pardo makes some fabulous colors in their Professional Jewelry Clay line, and best of all it’s easy to condition! I also added some Faux Obsidian for contrast, and a bit of Faux Sea Sponge to bring in some hi-lights. Blown-Glass hollow beads bring another punch of turquiose. The necklace is constructed with pewter-look findings, which lends a matte/natural appearance to the metal.
