I have used Swarovski pearls and freshwater pearls in different colors to make these adorable peapods. It seems easy but it could be hard... Art Clay Silver shrinks about 10% after firing, which sometimes gives me difficult time finding the right pearls to fit in if I didn't make it large enough at the first place. I made some twin peas in a pod and some trio peas pod. Here are some of the twins... :)
This snowman has been a hit! I sold quite a few of them this winter. It may seem easy but it could be hard to make a nice and cute one. First, it's tiny, which makes it hard to manage when sculping and polishing. Secondly, it's hard to find the perfectly matched pearls. The freshwater pearls come in different sizes and shapes. I always have to match them one by one to find the perfect body for the head. But they all turned out cute! I wish I could make more but I am almost out of the pearls for the snowman body.

Like last year, I have a collection of shirt-boxes in Christmas colors! I do not have as many as I did last year, but I still have the most popular ones! It's perfect to hold gift cards, lottery tickets, and small items like jewelry. It makes great placesettings on your dining table to impress your guests! It's pre-assembled so the gifts are filled in from the bottom, then you close and tape it like you would tape a wrapping paper!
