Art Beads......a new passion


 
I pulled out the polymer clay

and decided to give it a try again...
 


This time I decided to try free form hand shaped beads...
 





 
 
I plan to incorporate these art beads
 
into some of my jewelry designs...
 
 
 





I use Fimo, Primo, Sculpey......I like them all!
 






 
Round, square, flat, leaves, birds.......art beads





 
This is my first attempt at owl beads






Tools of the Trade




 
Feather Beads......from a push mold
 
 
 
 


 
These are fresh out of the oven....Feathers
 
I will paint over these with white paint then wipe it off.
 





 
This is my Clay set up at the kitchen table.
 
I don't have a dedicated clay work space......yet.
 
 
 
 
Here are a few Valentines necklaces I put together:
 

 
I had a lot of fun making the birds, beads and hearts...
