This is called a Crazy Klimt bead set. The patterns are made by putting several shades of raspberry and teal with white into my new clay extruder. It's the kind that has a crank handle and actually can be worked without making your hands hurt for days. I love this look. The "Klimt" is for the patterns in Gustav Klimt's paintings. Lately the beads I'm making are getting smaller and flatter and more workaday friendly. The flat disk beads give the bracelet a softer look. My hands long to make grand and glorious diva-style spheres that are gigantic and gorgeous and almost impossible to wear. How did Wilma Flintstone do it?
