I love lariat necklaces. Always have. I guess that's the cowgirl in me....I know that not all lariats are western or cowgirl style, but the ones I like the best are. Over the past months, I have received some beautiful hand sculpted beads from two of my favorite stoneware artists, Natalie Pappas and Marti Conrad. I wanted to make something with them that really made the beads stand out.
The bird bead is by Natalie Pappas and the fish is by Marti Conrad. I love the way they came out. Not true lariat necklaces, they certainly are in the lariat style and I think the beads pop on these. Let me know what you think of them.
