Scrap clay: no such thing!

I had a previous post about "scrap" clay being my preferred way to work with the clay. Here's a what-it-started-as and what-it-became photo.


  1. These are gorgeous! I'm totally digging your beads. Do you use bead rollers or hand form your beads?

  2. thanks!
    I hand roll almost everything. Here are examples where I used a roller:

    the big beads here:

    the tiny guys here:

    these were started with hand-rolled pieces, stuck together, then finished in a roller:

    I find it's harder to figure out exactly how much clay fits in the roller than to just do them by hand. The roller sometimes "unrolls" them as well and then the bead falls apart.
