For the keepsake beads, Anne mixes dried flower petals from a customer’s significant event with polymer clay and creates beads from the mix. For this "cremains" pendant, she embedded a few of the cremated ashes of a friend’s pet.
While this is certainly a step beyond mixing spices, dirt, or crayons into clay, it’s a rather nice memento. And I for one like the idea of being forever bonded with polymer clay.
