My Latest Beads
I developed new polymer clay beads for this month's Polymer Clay Artists Guild of Etsy challenge. The theme was mixed media so I combined my new roughly faceted poly clay beads with my wet-felted merino beads in mint. It's a wild combination, not for the shy! I also made matching earrings.
I love the little round mint poly clay beads I made to coordinate, they are so round and satisfying! To get that color, I mixed a mint I liked and then added a little of that to translucent clay and blended it completely. The result is almost like that of Fire King Jadeite. The translucent Premo clay has a nice firm texture that makes it nice for rolling round bead between your fingers.
I think the voting is usually around the 28th, so check in with the PCAGOE website from time to time to see if you can vote and enter to win a poly clay prize pack!
UPDATE: The winner is announced :)
