you don't bring me FLOWERS, anymore


These beads are lovely and fun to make. First, I made a Black base beads, then make a tiny snake with different colors and blend them lightly. Twist the snake and roll it up, then stick it to the Black beads. Add the leaves by making a tiny teardrop shape out of green clay, with the end of the knitting needle, draw a line in the middle, stick the leaves next to the flower. With a small knife, draw the small veins. The MENTOS spacer beads make a nice compliment to these flower beads.
My friend, Mammy, send me a floor lamp with magnify glass, so I can see better. Thank you, Mammy!

Dear Keleka
I got started after I bought a cool rubber stamp sheet from Barbara Mcguire. Google "Polymer Clay Beads" and you will get plenty of inspiration. It is fun because the material so pretty cheet and so vesitile. Any question, please ask!
