Polymer clay, Beading wire, Vintage Czech glass, Czech glass beads, Hidden armature wires, Lobster claw clasps

This is a large polymer clay necklace featuring two intertwined twin snakes that I made using mirror image technique. The beads in this piece are green and amber modern Czech glass and red vintage Czech glass. The necklace comes with an extender so that it can be worn at two different lengths.

The red vintage beads are unusual in that the color varies more than a bit depending on the light source. Under flourescent light they are a dark red or maroon that matches the maroon color of the twin snakes, but they brighten some under natural sunlight; and under incandescent light they are an intense red color.

Including the beaded sections and the width across the centerpiece, the necklace is about 17" long without the necklace extender and 20 1/2" long with it. To most of the world that translates to about 43 cm without the extender and 52 cm with it.

The polymer clay twin snakes centerpiece is approximately 4 1/2" long x 2" wide, and 3/8" thick across any one snake at the head. In metric that's about 11 1/2 cm x 5 cm, and 2 cm thick across either snake's head.

This piece is large, though light for its size. The model in the last two photos is wearing the necklace without the extender.


Technique:

As with cane-worked polymer clay pieces, the patterns are worked by using different colors of polymer clay and there is no paint or other surface material on the clay. I sanded the centerpiece down with wet/dry sandpaper for clean, crisp patterns and colors. I use strong high-quality polymer clay and heavy armature wire is embedded invisibly within major intersection points in all of my snake pieces. This piece is strung on "beading wire," 39-strand wire cable covered in nylon, which is both strong and flexible. The piece has gold-plated lobster claw clasps, on the main piece and on the necklace extender. The extender piece allows the necklace to be worn at two lengths.
