Mica Shift Beads

Mica Shift Beads

Bracelet using the Mica Beads

It is always fun to see what you can come up with when you work with mica shift.  That is polymer clay that has mica particles in it.  These beads have gold and pearl clay which have the mica particles.  I was trying a few different designs with them.  What happens is the light hits the particles differently that have been disturbed with a texture.  It is very exciting!  I then took the beads and added some wire work and made a bracelet for a friend! She loves gold and really loved the bracelet! -K
