First of all is a necklace made of polymer clay in beautiful colors, on a black adjustable cord.
The tubular bead is approximately 7 cm long. I made a few shorter beads too, as well as oval ones, but have to figure out what to do with them...
I enjoy actually making "beads", not necessarily in the traditional shape. And I love the handmade look, beads that you can tell they were made by hand and not machined. Sometimes you can see even the fingerprints of the crafter immortalized on them. But I just don't mind! They are unique. You can't by a bucket of the same type like these on a Chinese en-gros site [no offense!].
Enjoy and see ya!
