Happy Monday All.
Our local Polymer clay guild had our 1st Annual retreat. It was two days of claying, playing, eating, learning and fun. We are a fairly new guild, but we are growing all the time.
Here are some of the beads that I worked on while there. These were made from a cane I made from Sarah Shriver’s Big Bead Kaleidoscope cane workshop last year.
These are just some beads I made for fun. The one on the left was a joint effort by my friend Laura Schiller and myself.
I am pretty pleased with this one. It is two sided and completely hollow- so though it looks big, and it is (1 3/4 inches,) it is very light.
I like how this one turned out as well.
I have no idea how I am going to turn these into jewelry- that is the part I don’t really enjoy.
Oh one more photo- this is the bead I made at the Sarah Shriver workshop mentioned above. I donated it to our polymer clay guild auction to raise money for new library materials. It went for over 40.00 dollars. I was shocked! and more than a little flattered.
This one was probably 3 1/2 inches long but made from sculpey ultra light. It is also very lightweight.Sorry for the photo heavy blog and as always thanks for looking.
Jazz sends his regards
These are so vibrant! They almost seem to glow and the shapes are beautiful. Great job! 😀
Thanks Ellie. They are bold and big…I had fun and that’s what counts right? Thanks for looking.
The colors of these are beautifull. Very nice. I really like the one most right on the first foto.
Wow…you’re really good at this clay project! Love seeing all your projects.

I love your color scheme and design- would you be willing to tell me which colors you used? I’m putting in a clay order with munro.
Thank you Jill for your nice comments. These colors are actually kato clay and were custom mixed by a good friend of mine. At the time I had never used Kato clay and was going to have to go to Hobby Lobby and pick some up, condition it etc the night before. I wish I could be more helpful. I had layers of a light turquoise, a rich purple, an ultramarine type of blue, a green, a lime green and white when I started. (if memory serves) I will tell you that for caning- I much prefer Kato. I believe munro carries Kato. The new formula is MUCH easier to condition than it used to be too.
Good luck- I would love to see what you make.
