My obsession with bluebells didn’t end with just photographing and sketching them…I had to try and sculpt them as well! I found some beautiful blue agate beads that were the color of bluebells, made a polymer clay faux agate cane using a technique in one of my polymer clay books and sliced
and baked some beads with it which will be used in the future.

I then pushed out the middle of some of the slices to form bluebell flowers.  After a few failed attempts, it worked! I tried to hang the flowers in a natural way and ended up with a lightweight, cheerful necklace and earrings.  Enjoy!
