|Three necklaces I made from air dry clay pendants|
I incorporated found objects, recycled beads and chain and mounted these on brass bezels with Super New Glue.
|Love these recycled grungy beads - the color goes well with clay pendant|
This clay pendant was made with stacked brass finding, brass bead cap and two layers of clay.
Again, to secure all of the stacked layers I used Super New Glue. The chain I chose for this pendant was an upcycled (recycled) glass pearl necklace.
|Ancient looking clay coin pendant with brass, serpentine and glass opal|
This clay pendant was set on a brass coin (disc) that I punched to make holes for wire. The glass opal sets on top of the clay over a brass washer and is kept in place with two part (2 part) epoxy. I like the way to Serpentine beads continue the color from the epoxy. I also like the rustic look and feel of this finished assemblage necklace.

Necklace is set in open back brass setting. Because bezel is open the coin has purple suede glued to the back of the pendant. The cording is kumihimo braid made of natural waxed cotton. The cording and pendant make this look rustic - this I made in choker style.
|Clay pendant set on brass prong bezel with old reused beads|
Composed with brass and copper and assembled with handmade connector - this I made with 18 gauge wire, dead soft, and tumbled to harden the wire before putting the piece together. You can see the connector better in photo #1 above.
|Faux clay cameo assembled with handmade steel chain|
The last piece I am showing today was also in the tutorial - today I am showing it in different light so you can see the paint and brass liquid gilding. In the tutorial I mentioned too much scrubbing was done with steel wool - next time I'll leave more brass leaf. I made the chain from heavy wire that had been annealed by the supplier.
