fimo rose necklace

One of the best thing about beading is discovering new techniques and develop new designs and this piece shows a little experiment I did with polymer clay roses incorporated in a beaded necklace. I have never done anything in polymer clay before but thought it would be interesting to create something to be used with beads and I came up with these roses,- looking quite life-like I think!! :D
It was a bit of a headache to figure out how to actually attach them and make the piece look cohesive, but I think I managed to get quite a nice result for my first try! I'm already plotting making something new, perhaps a bridal piece with cream colored roses, who knows? As always, anything could happen, it's all about exploring and never being afraid of experimenting...often times it's utter rubbish,- but every once in a while, you may just come up with something extraordinary! Happy beading! :)
