Help, I Can't Stop Myself! The Focal Beads Are Everywhere!

Tomato Red Faux Tooled Leather Focal Beads

Textured Turquoise and Copper Basket Focal Beads

I took a break from making cakes last weekend to create some bodaciously big and bold focal beads. These are my new favorite thing to make! They are 25mm or larger, and I have made them with many different stamps and designs. I can't seem to stop making them, but they are so much fun.

I even got two necklaces made with them, and I must stop this madness and make more necklaces, got a show next weekend.

I love those round black and red ones at the top, my favourite colours!

As soon as I am set free from Uni, I am going to do lots of experiments with polymer clay and my Dremel, which I haven't be able to play with properly since I got it at Christmas!

Thank you, ladies! Gaina, I hope you get to try it soon. I've never found a more versatile medium than polymer clay!

This very moment I am blogging some of your creations, came to grab a link to your blog and had to stop and say Ooo la lah!!!
