Single-Strand Necklace with Kato Polyclay™, Seed Beads and Czech Glass Beads
As seen on the cover of the 2011-2012 Jewelry-Maker's Best Sellers Catalog
The cover necklace, "Spirit of Spring," features Eriko's handcrafted polymer clay beads made using her "millefiori clay" technique. The inspiration for the piece came to Eriko after the devastating earthquake in Japan. With family and friends living in the area, Eriko was feeling down and worried about her loved ones. She created "Spirit of Spring" to express to others "not to worry; you're having a hard time now, but spring will come. There is always hope."
