This necklace consists of handmade flower covered cylinder-shaped beads in multiple lengths and round black textured beads as accents strung on a black rubber Buna cord.
The cylinder beads are 3/4 inch to 1 3/4 inch in length. They feature orange and yellow tropical flowers on a black background. The flowers are thin slices of a raw polymer clay flower cane that have been applied to the black background. After application of the thin slices, the beads were re-rolled to make the flowers an integral part of the bead. The flowers are not painted on. Each cylinder bead has black ends for contrast. After curing, the beads were lightly sanded and buffed to a medium sheen.
The black round beads are 3/8 inch diameter, all hand-rolled, and are textured for contrast.
The beads are light weight, durable and water resistant but not waterproof.
The necklace is 20 1/2 inches long and uses a nickel-finished lobster closure.
