Cousin Corporation has just recently introduced a fantastic new line of products they call Second Skin. Second Skin is focused on the look and feel of exotic skins, particularly snake skin.
For the beads, I selected the Glass Strand Teal/Brown (I used only the brown beads) and for the pendant, I used several components from the Stacked Up™ Antique Gold Starter Pack (in a non-traditional way!) and teamed them up with my Wisdom charm. The base for my pendant is created with Cool2Cast. The inked design on the pendant teams up beautifully with the textured beads and even though the heart and toggle were designed to be used as a closure, I decided to feature them on the front with my charm.
The complete line of products in the Second Skin Collection is focused on the look and feel of exotic skins, particularly snake skin, which is the dominant and favored skin for the upcoming seasons. The program will include pendants, connectors and beads fabricated with a faux snake skin inset and a snake skin texture imprinted into the metal. This exotic skin is highlighted with luxurious jewel tones of dark reds, plums, teals and metal accents, like studs in antique gold and matte black. This program also features many seed beads and metal chains, which emanate the undulation of snakes and their coils.
Second Skin is NOW available at Primabead.com and select Jo-Ann stores.
