So glad you like it! The butterfly piece has some metal jewelry findings and swarovski crystals added, but the rest of it except the wooden base is polymer clay. Sea Change is all polymer clay except the wooden base it is glued to.

So whimsical and vibrant.  I love the dimension of the whole thing and the variants in the colors.  The checkerboard background looks really cool with the butterfly, too.  Absolutely wonderful all the way around!  Cheesy
