    I love your poly clay beads and what you did with them. I also love the way that the little silver star adds an asymmetrical touch. Fun and light piece.

    Never tried clay. Guarantee if I did it would NOT look this good. I’m certainly impressed. I can’t wait to see more of your work.

    I used to watch a show called Carol Duvall. She had a lady on there who did polymer clay jewelery. I even taped a lot of her shows about jewelry. Never thought I’d find myself ever making any though.
    This is a very splendid piece. Good for a lot of patriotic holidays, including voteing day.
