The beads are stamped on polymer clay (fimo classic) and then roughly cut by hand with a scalpell. Just following the lines of the pattern. The beads for both earrings started from the same polymer clay colour, they just got a different colour of acrylic paint on top.
Both kind of glas ebads, the dark and the ligh blue ones, are actually quite old czech beads. I got them from Rumpels mother. She had a collection of glas beads she intented to use (but we all know how this may go). So knowing that I love to make jewelery, she generously gave them to me! I love to use them knowing abozt their history and age (even if they don't look old).
