All the clay I used in both pendants have a small amount of pearl and a small amount of translucent in them. When you see them up close you can see the pearl in the colors and it's really pretty. Guess I should have baked it for at least 10 minutes before I wrapped it up to take it home.

NATASHA, I LOVE YOU
About 7 years ago someone in our guild showed me how to make a Natasha bead out of scrap clay. I made tons of beads. A couple years ago I screwed one up and decided to flatten it and cut out a pendant with a cutter. Since then, I've probably made about 200 of those because I always seem to have a lot of scrap clay laying around. This past Wednesday at our beading clay day, I did my Skinner blend wrong and ended up with pieces and some things I didn't like so I made a Natasha pendant. Then I used the left over pieces I made the night before from the cane to show the girls how to make a pendant using Penni Jo's molds. I just finished sanding and buffing the two pieces. I didn't bake the Natasha bead until I got home and I managed to distort the pattern but I like it. I think I need to sand and buff and mold pendant again, or not.
