Thought you might like to see what I am working on today.
Here are some polymer clay beads for a lariat style necklace:
There are more beads to make before they all go into the (toaster) oven. Two or 3 more colors. Someday, I will have to invest in a metal rack that allows the mandrels to rest lengthwise and can go right into the oven. Until then I will enjoy this styrofoam holding stand for items just-made. The beads look sort of cute and perky, don't you think? Will transfer them later to a DIY rack made of aluminum foil that stays in the oven.
