Polymer Clay Beads

The Julie Picarello challenge on "Discussions from the Claypen" was a big success!  Most of the regulars showed up and many new folks popped in to say hello.  3 pages of gorgeous photos were on display.  Here is a link if you'd like take a peek.


  Marlea was the winner of the beautiful pendant donated by Julie Picarello. Our next challenge will be voodoo dolls of Marlea...  lol, just kidding!

I used the recycled canes to make beads.

Click on the photos for a closer look.

I used a couple different canes to make this assortment.

I love these, I think they look like fern leaves.

Red and Grey

                                                       Mostly Blue with a touch of red and green

                                               I like the stained glass look of these.

                                                Blue and green capsule beads

  Mirror image hearts from the cane ends. I am making round beads from the canes. to use with these.

More beads to come. Thanks for stopping by.


  1. What cool beads! I especially like 'fern' canes. The recycled aspect of the beads fascinates me.

  2. Thanks Anita, I like the fern beads the best too.

  3. Awesome!! I like the blue/purple colors so much, the black is perfect in the. I was surprised at how much I like the red-grey, too... it must be autumn. :) Oh well HERE it's winter - it's snowing today - apparently we are to go straight from summer into winter. Grrrr.
    :( HUGS!
