Bead Journal June

I sculpted the two peaceful, loving birds from polymer. The Dream talisman is a transfer onto polymer.
I used antique steel cut beads for the neck piece as well as on the front design.
A couple of crystals, seed beads, a piece of turquoise and some fresh water pearls.
The base is Nicole Campanella's Beadwright bead backing material. You can find it HERE (Nicole is temporarily away due to an illness in her family. Please check back again). It was easy to use and I love all the colors it comes in. I made the pocket and lining from material I purchased at JoAnn's Fabrics. I used Krazy Glue to attach the birds and Weldbond glue to attach the material.

Thanks for the 2nd post with the details. I'm wondering about your birds and how you sculpted them.
