Ouch Beads

black, blue with sapphire

I'd forgotten about these.....
Shame on me because I really enjoy making them, working with clay just makes sense to me!
So with the beads I found, coupled with some hand dyed twine and here are the results!

 I like the copper end caps over any other metal choice...but would you like to see silver and gold?

arabian blue with pink



white with black



coral with indigo




blue ,black, indigo on leather

This is my favourite!

What's yours ?


chartreuse with yellow

In the shop soon!
