I was playing with my clay last night and ended up with these. I think they're kind of cute. Smiley

They're just bases made from polymer clay with little disks of clay stacked on them.

(edited to fix broken images)

Those beads are really nifty.  I had to go to your page to view them, and almost had a siezure.  Can you choose which banner ads go on your site?  That flashing virus one is painful!

I know, it really stinks. I'm still trying to find a hosting service that accepts Paypal AND allows editing on line instead of ftp (I have a mac). It's a real pain, and I can't change it. I'm going to try to fix the images. Thank you, though. Smiley

Thanks for the compliment!
The key is to burnish polyclay pieces by rubbing your finger on them. It removes the fingerprints. Of course, I worked on these directly on the pan I baked them on, so that I didn't have to touch them again. Usually I sand beads after I bake them. It's a pain, but it works. Smiley

Alea, those are *so* fun!  I'm honestly not usually into polymer clay stuff (especially when I make it -- always comes out wonky!), but these are totally adorable!!  The color choices on both are super cool.

Btw (re: your FTP note), there are lots of ways you can FTP on a Mac.  There's a great free FTP program called RBrowser Lite that you can get from versiontracker.com and there are many other good ones that only cost a tiny bit.  Plus Web editing programs like Dreamweaver have their own FTP built in, if you decide to go that route.

Btw (re: your FTP note), there are lots of ways you can FTP on a Mac.  

Also, if you're not afraid of the Unix side, just open a Terminal window, and regular old ftp works. First go to the directory where your stuff is, then
just type 'ftp user@host' where user and host are your username and the host you're going to.  Then inside ftp you cd to the directory where you want your stuff to go.  Then just type 'put filename' (where filename is the name of the file you want to put there)
when you're done, type quit or maybe exit, I can't remember which.

It's actually really easy! (says the girl with a PhD in computer science Wink )  btw, Terminal is in the Utilities folder of Applications.  and once you have it open, you can type 'man ftp' to get the manual page on ftp - heck you can do this to learn more about any unix command.  If you'd like more help, just send me a personal message.
