In early November, we moved from Dublin, Ireland to Boston, MA and now the new relocation. 29th of March we moved to Irvine, California. It happened so suddenly that I still can not believe it. But now I see the palm trees through the window, not snow like in Boston. And the sun, and the wind is warm, … I really love it :)) And Pacific ocean and a rainbow on the waves … Can you see it?

For now, all that is left for me to do – it’s sketch of new jewelry designs and record ideas for new (or not) techniques to notebook…

Some time ago I created the community Polymer Clay Playground for Russian-speaking fans of polymer clay. Every week we make different kinds of beads on a given topic. One of those topic was the “polka-dots.” This is my version of the polka-dot beads and a necklace that I made of them.
