    Very, very nice! Is that the color of the clay or did you tint it with another color? It looks like another shade is filling in the indentations. I especially like the fact that you put the hole in the side of the bee instead of the top or bottom. :) Very artistic! :)

    Becky, I used gold colored clay, than a bronze mica powder and some acrylic paint to antique it.

    Totally agree with everyone, this is LOVELY! And unless you are one heck of a photographer, I’m betting it’s even prettier in person. Great job!

    Beautiful! Really love the two green daisy beads (they really add that little something). I am inspired to try something like this for a change. Oh, and yes, wish the photo was bigger :-)
