Green and Black Lace Beads

I am proud to report that I made my first Etsy sale back on January 30. Woooohhhhhh!! Below are the behind the scene pictures of the beads that went into the first necklace that I sold.

Start with quarter blocks of translucent, hot green, silver, and black Sculpey clay.
