I made the polymer clay beads some months ago. I even wired them up (I know this may not be the right technical term, but somehow it describes perfectly what I was doing... at least for me ^^) and then they waited on my table. I actually have chaotic boxes where I sort my beads / pieces in the different stages of creation. Beads without paint, painted but without lacquer, already started to combine beads/wire them, putting the single items together... up to: Just need an earring hook or clasp added. Would you believe that the last step may sometimes be the longest?
Finally I got some big czech glass bead drops and the black etched glass as well as the size and shape of the beads just complemented my polymer clay beads. They even sold the next day!
(I was tempted to keep them... but since the person fall in love with them, I could give them away :) )
