I used one of my Pardo Art Clay canes to make this large bead. It always amazes me how clear Pardo Translucent Art Clay is.
Click on the photos for a closer look.
Here are the canes I used and the metallic green bead that I covered with the canes.
Here is the covered ball before I popped it in the oven.
After I took it out of the oven I immediately dropped it in ice water to help clear the translucent clay. I also made a large flower bead in the same colors and a 2 part bead in shades of green.
As you can see I got a little carried away with mirror image beads and charms. That should take care of my mirror image compulsion for a while. I see all kinds of little critters on the charms.... click on the photo if you want to see them too.
I was playing around and made a couple fun pendants with some of the mirror images ....and a few more charms.
I had left over metallic clay so I used texture sheets to made a few large chunky beads.
I have so many "works in progress", the beads and pendants are piling up, it's time to to get out my wire and cord and start assembling jewelry pieces.
