For those among us who make jewelry, 2 Good offers fantastic beads filled with rich color and in a number of varieties, as well buttons galore for textile or jewelry use.
|Tiger Print - Made To Order|
|Zebra Print Pendant|
These amazing pieces are not only a work of overall design but require lots of patient practice and anticipation of how the clay and colors will move when they are being layered during the caning process. Carolyn's talent and obvious skill are really showcased in these Animal Print treasures.
|Light Vintage Rose Textured Lentil Beads|
This is a fabulous example of how these beautiful little lentil beads can be used. Carolyn shows them as a necklace, bracelet and earring complete ensemble. You can see the amazing amount of detail that is captured in the beads as well as the additive affect of the other handmade beads that are used for this set.
|Antique Copper Textured Tube Beads|
Among my personal favorites are these tube beads.
In the description for these Carolyn states that she uses her own technique to create these so there is no seam. This is a wonderful feature that really enhances any design they could be used for. The beads are all finished so they maintain the shimmering metallic finish.
Me, I love the colors and texture 2 Good has available. I can imagine including them in a fabulous necklace with lengths of Gold Filled or shiny raw bronze chainmaille between them.
Now, don't imagine that you can not get amazing, stylish and just gorgeous pieces of ready to wear jewelry from 2 Good. Carolyn and her husband work hard to make some fun and stylish pieces that are great in sets or single statement pieces.
|Amparo Blue and Turquoise Bangle|
This pretty piece features the swirling movement that is so typical of polyclay, though I think we can all agree that this piece is anything but typical. Pretty and ready for that Caribbean vacation, a wonderful week long cruise or just a summer-time flash of color.
|Amethyst Weave Textured Earrings|
|Amethyst Textured Tube Bead Ribbon Necklace|
|Blue and Gold Shawl / Scarf Pin|
Can you just see yourself in your favorite shawl or long, thick scarf and this richly toned and patterned pin holding it perfectly in place? I can! Understated, elegant and the perfect accessory for those loose knit essentials.
The latest additions to 2 Good's lines is the Country Charm Collection. These pieces not only offer themselves as yet another example of Carolyn's design sense, but are made using a "special technique where no two piece come out alike." Real, one of a kind treasures.
|Layered Feather Earrings in Honeysuckle Pink|
Feathers! The birds would be jealous if they could see these. Well, maybe not, but they are really amazing and look like they would be lots of fun to wear.
|Boot Bracelet - Olive Green and Gold Lizard Tail|
|Boot Bracelet -Black and White Lizard Tail|
Below is a composite image of the Blue Feather pieces that are part of the Country Charm Collection.
