Polymer Roses :)

I made a few more polymer flowers to list in my Etsy store. Here's a quick preview:

Each and every one of them is unique, hand sculpted, I don't use molds.

After they're cured, I apply the paint, layer by layer...remove, takes hours...

...but the perfect colors and shades are reached and in the end, it's all worthed.

I love them.

My favourite pair...they look like salvaged porcelain flowers, with ripped off edges...I think I'm going to keep these for myself.

I'm thinking $15 each pair...I don't know if anyone is willing to pay that...I can't sell them cheap, they take so much time and work. I'll wait for a week, and if they don't sell I'll turn them into earrings. Earrings always sell. These two pairs sold so fast!

See you soon!
Love, Laura xo

Yumi Rustic Art Beads Soup Recipe!

I have been preparing a rustic bead soup for my friend Solange from YeeLen Spirit Designs and it's finally ready! My ingredients:

 ~ Rustic polymer art beads ~ Every bead is one of a kind, I rarely make them in pairs because I love experimenting.

~ Metal findings ~ A pair of metal elements from a vintage Native American belt, a vintage kuchi pendant, a set of fancy ear wires, hammered copper components, rhinestone spacers, religious art findings.

~ Yellow african glass beads, coral bead, two artisan ceramic beads from N. Carolina, that I've painted with alcohol inks.

~ More African glass beads, two small green trade beads, purple beans (!!), Lapis lazuli, long wooden  organic beads, african terracotta beads, vintage white and blue flowers ceramic beads, bone beads and some tribal bead caps. 

That's the whole yumi bead soup, I really hope she'll like it. Bad pictures taken with my not-so-smart phone because I lost my usb memory card reader and now I have to order anoth…
