Polymer clay is my latest obsession…I’m not even sure how many hours I’ve spent playing around with it lately. Some of the artwork people are creating with the clay is nothing short of amazing. I have so many things I want to try! Because I’m on the uphill side of the learning curve, my efforts create more scrap than anything else but I’m enjoying the process so much that I don’t mind.
Once in awhile, though, a happy accident happens and I end up with something really cool. The designs in these beads started off as something much different–a floral design that just wasn’t coming together–so I just took all the pieces and mushed them together and came up with these designs, which I think look like batik fabric. When I was putting the necklace together, I decided the design needed flat spacer beads so I made those, too. Instant gratification junkie that I am, I’m completely in love with the idea of being able to make whatever beads I need on the fly.
