Wear the Caribbean Close up by SandFibers Wear the Caribbean Close up by SandFibers
Another view of the same piece

Recipe for a year-round tropical vacation:

1. Take one wheel-thrown, glass-fused clay medallion created by Etsy's artisanclay.

2. Beadweave a copper open-back bezel in peyote with an aqua inner edge.

3. Beadweave a copper and aqua tube in peyote to serve as a bail for the wonderful pendant.

4. Beadweave a copper and aqua "chain" with an adjustable loop and toggle closure.

Voila -- you are instantly transported to the beaches of the Caribbean when you wear this. Promise!

The pendant measures 1.6" by 2.25". The necklace adjusts from 16" - 18" inches to match the wearer's mood and neckline.


Here's artisanclay's description of how she creates her glass-fused pieces: "The Piece itself has been fused with Stained Glass during the Kiln-firing process. I have combined many kinds of glass (clear, opaque, milky, and different colors) The Glasses become liquid and bleed into each other in the kiln swirling ands blending at the edges. Finally as I cool the kiln the glass fractures and crackles but with a smooth glass top. The crackling refracts light and glistens in the sun."
