Polymer Clay Bliss

I've been playing with polymer clay and making beads.

LOTS of beads.

These pics do not include the ones I cooked too long.  There's lots of those too!

These are some earrings I made for one of my daughter's friends, combining the blue/gold colors of the high school she will be attending next year. 

I really like these.  There's just something about the party-like glitter of the beads combined with the more serious gold components.

I know I have a looooooooong way to go as far as polymer clay is concerned, but boy, am I having a GREAT time!

Next stop?  Bead embroidery! =)

Your beads are beautiful! Love the colors.

How do you get the filigree on the beads? I've also begun to play with polymer clay, and I've never seen that effect.
