Deconstructed lentil bead pendant

Make, unmake, and remake a fundamental metal clay form to redefine a classic shape

To anyone who has worked with metal clay, the lentil bead is a familiar shape. So familiar, in fact, that boredom threatens to set in. So, what do you do to prevent a classic shape from becoming cliché? The key to remaking something with a fresh twist is to first unmake it, then reassemble it in a new and inspiring way. Add an exciting new material — copper metal clay — and you have a lentil bead reimagined.
