A Simple Green Nugget Necklace

I was digging around in my necklaces looking for something to wear yesterday and came across this necklace which I created a couple of years ago.  It was in the beginnings of what I call my 'rock' phase, whereas I was intrigued into making beads look as though they came out of the earth and had been polished.  In other words, the nugget bead.  I used simple shiny seed beads and simple silver tone spacers along with some dark green melon ceramic beads which I had also made about the same time period.  The toggle and clasp are also quite simple.  I like simple.  This makes me want to make some more nugget beads and see where the glazing takes me. Maybe I will do that sometime this week.  Thanks for visiting my blog!


  1. The look like real stones, you should do more for sure.

  2. Those green beads are so lovely!
    For me, the 'rocky' nature of clay is what I love the most in ceramics.

  3. I love the organic look of your nuggets. You should definitely do more.

  4. I tried to do some and I ended up putting textures in them. I'll have to make myself do some smooth ones. :)
