This week my energies have mostly been diverted into making Christmas gifts (which I can’t show yet) and a cow costume (which isn’t polymer clay). So the red beads I have made for my 2015 Polymer Clay Challenge are pretty underwhelming.

They are literally scraps of mokume gane twisted together to make a bead. The two beads don’t match particularly well, but they might make a quirky pair of earrings or a fun accent in a necklace/bracelet.

I quite like the organic look of them. They remind me of crysalises. Maybe something exciting will emerge?
