I was inspired by Sonya Girodon’s necklace Skeleton Coast to make beads by stacking layers of polymer clay.

"Skeleton Coast"

I was quite pleased with my efforts at the time but unfortunately now that I look at them in comparison to hers they look horribly juvenile. Or maybe it’s just because I’m having an “everything I do is horrible” day? 😦

Anyway check out Sonya’s work, she even shares a tutorial for making beads similar to the focal ones in the necklace.
