Hello lovely Craftster peeps  Grin

I was asked to put together a custom piece for a friend, they wanted something blue for their mom who loves the ocean. This is what I came up with  Smiley



I'm so pleased with how it came out. It took around four and a half hours from start to finish! They love it too which is what really matters  Cheesy



As always I'd love to hear your comments and critiques  Cheesy

Thank you so much Cheesy

Spirals, I am much the same as you and am always drawn to spirals! I'm definitely going to make more of this design  Smiley

azreno I'm so pleased you think so! It came out even prettier than I expected  Grin

kcartwright856 Thanks, I love it too Smiley It glows really beautifully, I'll be sad to see it leave

I have a couple more of these to post at some point soon, but as it's nearly half past midnight here I'm off to bed now  Wink

It's really pretty, looks like the sea. Just a question, what is it made of?

Hi imera, thank you  Smiley that's exactly the look I was going for  Cheesy

It is made of very thin slices of a jellyroll 'cane' of polymer clay. I always mix in translucent clay for my tea light holders as it makes them glow so prettily  Grin
