Polymer Clay Bullseye

I've hit the bullseye with a new polymer clay method... new to me, that is. Thanks to some very generous artists, there are so many wonderful tutorials and websites online, it's like going back to college minus the tuition. With patience and a sense of humor, I've managed to make a series of these beautiful "butterfly wing" beads.



I saved the waste trimmings and veneered some small ovals of clay to make matching accent beads.



The final result is this beautiful, yet simple, necklace. You can find this listed for sale in my Etsy shop.



It's so nice to have life back to normal. I'm relaxed, and can put all of that energy I spent worrying into something creative instead. I'll be listing more new work steadily over then next few weeks, so check back often to see what's what.

Wow, they're really beautiful - and so are the absolutely gorgeous earrings I just received in today's mail! They went straight on my ears and it didn't take my 6 year old daughter five minutes to notice them and say "wow mom, what cool earrings!".

Thank you so much - I love the earrings, and I love even more that we got a chance to meet via OWOH.
