Hi, everyone! I think I’ve found a good item for this week’s Freebie Friday.

How about a set of handmade polymer clay beads? I made these a few years ago, while I had the bead store.

Polymer Clay Large Lentils, Side 1
Large Lentil Beads, Side One

These are large, lentil-shaped beads. The largest is about an inch in diameter, the others about 7/8 of an inch. All three were made with the same colors, so they go together nicely. The dark gold color is a metallic clay, so there’s a bit of shimmer throughout, as well.

Large Lentil Beads, Side Two

I’ve strung them on about a yard of quarter-inch organza ribbon, in lavender, with 6/o seed beads in matte amber A/B in between. Mostly this is to keep the set together, but it could be worn as an impromptu necklace as is. If you’d like to restring these, however, I’ll include the rest of the 15-gram package of 6/o beads for you to use in your design.

How about it? Would you like these beads to come live with you? It could happen! Just follow these simple rules, and they could be yours.
