Polymer Clay seashells inspired by my first Bead Cruise.  Where have I been the last two weeks?  Getting ready for the cruise and then sailing from tropical island to tropical island while I taught bead and jewelrymaking classes.  It’s a tough life, but someone has to do it!

You can make your own shell beads with my simple tutorial.  By trying different colors you can create beads that look completely different.  Here are a few examples of the same cane in different color schemes:

    Very cool! What are you planning on making with them? I really like the way the disks look sideways & stacked..
