Tuesday's polyclay is full of grace

necklace planning

I've been wanting to make this necklace for, oh, forever. Found the birds online in an old Armenian manuscript that at the time I was perusing for clothing details. I want to use the VAharoni transfer technique to put them on some faux ivory, but I'm not sure of the shape of the central pendant, still. I may yet go with a 'pointy oval' instead of the 'arabian doorway' idea. Unfortunately, it seems every time I get an ivory blend made up I use it on something else. The other day I was playing with some watercolor pencils (more on that later in the week) and drew out the above, thinking it might jumpstart actual work on the project. Whether it does remains to be seen . . .
