Arden Bardol Squiggles Necklace
Bardol works with custom-blended polymer clay. She mixes the clay with metal powders and a variety of other materials to produce unique colors. She sometimes rolls textures onto the clay or uses a cut-away process to add depth to the clay. Then, each tile is formed into a bead. Once the beads are formed, she adds additional texture and detail. Then, the beads are cured and fired at a low temperature.
