This French polymer clay bead from Céline Charuau at Parole de Pate reminds me of a beachball. There’s a companion tutorial that shows a clever way of making these and I’m intrigued by the necklace. Though the round beads are all the same size, the random combinations of extruded colors make the resulting beads randomly striped.
It’s hard to explain but you’ll get the idea from the pictures.
I abandoned my husband at the beach to find a McDonald’s internet connection. He’s fishing. He won’t notice that I’m gone but I’d better get back. We’re heading home tomorrow.
Did you see Tina Holden’s link to Joan Tayler’s sand dollar cane tutorial?

I knew that I’d seen gris bleu before on PCD. You wrote about her in September 2008 (the search button is very handy).
The tutorial refers to montgolfières. The word montgolfière in French refers to a hot air balloon. It is named after the Montgolfière brothers who first invented the hot air balloon.
