So I subscribe to beading magazines, and occasionally try some of the patterns that are published on two or three very condensed pages.   One magazine mentioned buying beading patterns on Etsy, and that’s how I found ellad2.  She photographs every single step!  I buy the .PDF files, and print out the 20-30 pages that contains each project.  So easy to follow, and such gorgeous designs!  I’ve had to buy a larger notebook as I know I’ll be buying and printing more projects from her.

Polymer clay stones

Polymer stones with flashI know I need to take better pictures, and set up a light box and all that, but I’m too impatient this evening.   I’m also too impatient to make perfectly round clay beads, but that’s okay for stone-like beads such as these.  I don’t know what stone the pendant is, and the smaller beads are glass, but the rest I made from polymer clay.
