About this design:

I haven't been on LB lately, had a couple of custom orders, and of course I can't just make a few beads I had to make a 100 mainly in the crackle technique that takes a while to do because of the multiple layers and I also tried my hand at making my own stamps and molds in order to make my pieces more unique, it is harder then it looks, but I finished one that I'm happy with.

Components:

Polymer clay, Acrylic paint, Crackle medium, Sealer

    Think you have found your real niche, Asia – - your jewelry is great, but you have become a true genius with the PC ! Love all of these, but especially the first butterfly – - -
