This week, week 25 of the 2015 Polymer Clay Challenge, I made blue beads. I used the fragments from drilling the big beads last week to make some “frit” beads.

I like the painterly effect created by adding mica powder unevenly.

They remind me of Monet’s paintings of water lilies, so that’s what I’ve named them. 😉
