I have been experimenting with various materials recently. This is one of my experiments that I am relatively pleased with...
The roses I made with polymer clay. I had some trouble coming up with the red that I wanted, but I got fairly close with this very deep, dark red (the picture looks a tad orange, but it really isn't).
I had really wanted dark green stones for this, but the jade beads I had my heart set on were SO expensive... so I "settled" for some stones on sale (I was grumpy that I had to settle - which is probably why I don't remember what these are... ). I am actually very pleased with them now - they are a very pretty light green stone with dark green streaks (reminds me a bit of moss agate, but I am not sure).
(This is my first post of my work so I have a quick question... is it normal to be this nervous? )
