I am also in the process of coming up with some samples of beads for our next guild meeting. I will be showing our members some ways to create some colorful polymer clay beads for Beads of Courage.
I came across quite a few tutorials on creating polymer beads. Here are some samples of a few different types of polymer clay beads (Butterfly Wing Beads, Spiral Beads and Textured Style Beads). I think some of my clay in the butterfly cane was softer than others, so it didn't turn out exactly like the tutorial but I was still happy with it.

Textured Style Beads in yellow, Spiral Beads
and Butterfly Wing Beads
I created these beads using some
old canes and recent canes that I had in my stash of canes
as well as scrap clay.
These canes and beads are my challenges for Week#18 of the 2015 Polymer Clay Challenge. I am hoping to create some more polymer clay beads this coming week after I take a break from sanding and buffing.
Thank you for stopping by and have a great day. Wishing all the moms a Happy Mother's Day!
