Fishtail Pendant:
Designing with Reversible Beads
Polymer Workshop

Project: Fishtail Pendant.
Level: Basic polymer clay experience required.

kolormondofamiljefoto-850x534Travel the world of color while making a collection of simple flat beads and color coordinated, reversible pendants using Maggie’sSmashing Color Mixing Map and signature ColorWash technique.

This one-day workshop  introduces you to the world of KOLORMONDO -the Swedish color globe that makes understanding color easy and fun.

A good part of the day will be spent auditioning your colors by making sampler beads and testing variations in the technique to find just the right undertones and color combinations for you.

We will refer to your test beads to refine the colors of your personal palette before choosing a ColorScheme to use for your collection of  flat beads.

The real fun begins when you cut out the pieces, flip them over, and mix and match them for a full collection of solid color beads!

Once they are all cured, you can select your favorite pieces to finish and string into a beautiful Fishtail Pendant. Take the rest of your beads home to finish and use to create color washed jewelry such as a simple single bead pendant or complex Circles and Leaves Necklace.
