So, I am brand new to polymer clay and have been watching NerdECrafter's video tutorials for months and months before gathering my courage, buying Sculpey and giving it a go ... I absolutely love her Koi Pond tutorial and decided I needed koi in my life. This is the result of 3 days work. Let me know what you think. Thanks for looking Smiley

My first koi, Gred:
 

My second koi, Forge:


Koi necklace with second pair of koi for a future koi pond:


Second pair of koi from above picture, along with two more sets of koi. I wanted to see how small I could make them Smiley



Final picture, me, wearing the tiny koi as earrings and a good shot of the necklace.
