Bold, beautiful, and perfect for your favorite entomologist. The large polymer clay focal I used for this one-of-a-kind necklace features an image of a giant stag beetle (lucanus elaphus). Surrounded with beads in colors that complement the focal, this is truly a statement piece.

The focal and the two dark beads used in this necklace are polymer clay. The focal is surrounded by a beadwoven bezel in bright gold, antique metallic purple, and bright orange. The oversized polymer clay cabochon is suspended from ndebele ropes made from some of the same beads used in the bezel and is accented with copper-lined clear glass beads, textured faux pearls in gold, and black polymer clay beads with metallic swirls.

I decided to do something funky with the back of the focal, too. First I covered the polymer clay cab with soft pale leather, and then I used tiny black beads to weave a crazy design over the entire piece. Not that you'd want to hide the beautiful focal, but you could even choose to wear this piece turned around backwards for an entirely different look.

♦ Focal: 3-3/8" (86mm) tall x 2" (51mm) wide
♦ Length: ~21" (53cm)
♦ Technique: right angle weave (bezel), ndebele rope
♦ Closure: Beaded loop and toggle
♦ Materials: Czech glass beads (sizes 8, 11, and 15), faux pearls, glass beads, Fireline, polymer clay cabochon

Packaged in a beautiful gift box, perfect to give as a present to someone special or to yourself!
