When I got these teeth, I really hesitated on what to use them for. I really wanted to do them justice, and never having baked with bone before, I wasn't sure how it would hold up. Taking the chance that it would turn out just how envisioned, I proceded to create the piece how I saw it in my mind. I had to attach the tooth in a way that would not distort the design of the pendant.
I ended up wrapping the clay around the tooth, and then attaching it to the teardrop base of the pendant. I placed a Druzy Quartz that I found in Morton Grove, Illinois, to the center, and added swirls, dots and fans to really accentuate it. I still felt like it was missing something, so I added the pearl around the bottom loop to encourage the eye to move around the whole piece, and used some Acrylic paint to give it that patina effect.

Hello! My name is Leha, and I am the artist for The Greene Bead. I specialize in wire wrapped and Polymer Clay jewelry, and I create miniature (indoor) fairy gardens. I try to use as much naturally derived product as I can, including all genuine gemstones, mined locally here in Wisconsin, Illinois and from around the world. Some of my pieces even include upcycled items such as vintage beads, crystals and buttons!
My journey began back in 2010 as a way to create new jewelry for myself, a broke college student, by taking apart jewelry I already owned and piecing it back together to create new items. One of my roommates at the time saw what I was doing and asked me to create a few pieces for him, and that's how this all started!
After many years of practice and improvement (I'm still improving everyday!), I've come to the point in my journey where I can start giving back. I've created many pieces to be used in silent auctions to raise money for my high school, my hometown library, benefits for friends and family to help with medical bills, and even Parkinson's research.
Last, but certainly not least, it is my personal goal to make sure each and every item I create for you is completely unique and that you are 100% satisfied with your order. Please feel free to message me with any questions, comments or concerns! I wish you all the best in your endeavors to find that perfect gift for yourself or someone you love.
