Black, Brown, Grey, White and a little bit of Gold


I wore this bracelet at Bead&Button show last week and got a lot of compliment. I really like the color combination. Now that I am back at my table, I had no idea what I will do next. Enough of the bright , swirly, summer color beads.
So, I challenge myself to see how many beads I can make from these 5 color clay; Black, Brown, Grey, white, and Gold, and none of them will be the same. May be the same pattern but different color.
During the show, many people mentioned that they had clay at home, but don't know where to start. So I am writing the tutorial for these beads because it is simple and they look interesting. May be we should do something to get more people to play with clay. Basic bead making for the beginner sound good to me.
Stay tune to see how many I can make in a week, or take up this challenge with me with color of your choice.

Jim+: your beads are fun. They look alive and have different personalities. They remind me of some Japanese cartoon. What a challenge to always push your limit.

Hello...

Your beads are just beautiful! WOW, 50 different kinds.

I was wondering how you make your textures in the red photo posted? I am always looking for new ideas for texturing. Any information you pass on would be greatly appreciated.

Keep up the great work!

Rhonda
