It is time to post for Jeannie Dukic's Do Over Challenge 9. The pic above is what I received from her. It contains 5 of her wonderful polymer clay beads.
Here is what I made. I liked her design but I wanted Jeannie's colorful polymer beads to stand out more. I selected a neutral brown color  which was used in the marbling on the beads and stitched peyote tubes for between the beads to replace the silver. Then I stitched netted tubes for the straps to replace the chain. I chose copper beads caps to finish the netted tubes and a copper clasp to finish off my design.  The changes that I made are subtle but I am very pleased with the outcome. The colors in the clay beads now really shine.
