While Anne White has plenty of lovely polymer clay eye candy on her Blue Dog Beads and Flickr sites, what intrigues me most is her "cremains" pendant and keepsake beads.
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.
