I made a few new beads using black polymer clay mixed with a little cobalt blue. I used a tool to write words in a few and pressed violets in a couple of others, then painted them. I really like black and purple together. The 'Love' bead did not photograph so well, the actual bead looks much better than the photo.The second photograph is of the reverse of the beads. The Dream and Faith beads are wedge shaped with the bead hole off center. And on one of them I left some of the violet petal on the back of it, and sealed it to protect it. I think it looks cool. Also, I included a little bird bead that I had made several weeks ago. It was my first attempt at sculpture with polymer clay.
Peace and Joy
