They are still makes - and rather wonderful ones too by the looks of things!

There is something rather appealing about a big bowl of polyclay beads - just being able to fiddle through them and let your mind wander onto what you could make with each one is a sort of creative therapy.

I'm feeling quite pleased with myself - I poked in my huge stash of unused beads and at last, two years after making these (from Ginger Davis Allman's Rustic Bead tutorial) I forced myself to make them into a necklace  ::) ;D

That's gorgeous Carrie.

Just imagine, those poor beads, lying there in a heap unable to see the light of day until now :)

I know, criminal, isn't it  ;D  I have several boxes of unused beads......not to mention the dozens lying on the table in a sort of perpetual nearly used mode.....

Thank you!  It does look nice on, and is just long enough not to need a clasp which is a bonus!

I love the sort of randomness of the differing bead patterns too. It just wouldn't be quite so wow if all the beads were the same design, it is those variations of texture - oddly almost inperceivable at first glance - that give it the edge I think

Thanks Karolina.

Another one from me, a bit different.  One of my Wired Orchid technique pendants with wooden beads on leather.

Very nice, Claire  8)  I've got that tutorial...one day I will get round to trying it! The Sutton slice one is really striking too, very dramatic.
