Turquoise With Sea Urchins

Last year I custom made one of those sea urchins. Now more people want this rather strange colored creature. They are made of polymer clay. Some of the beads are added small glass beads.

I actually ordered real sea urchins from Florida to make copies of them. They are not easy to come by in Norway.

I love making them. And I like the fact that you can wear something that would be too fragile if they were real. Tina Holden has a tutorial on how you can make these. I make them in a little other way than she does but the result is the same.

One of the best things I know is to walk along a seashore looking for small treasures. And when I find something special it feels like I have found gold.

 And that´s the thing: There are always small treasures everywhere. Especially in people.

If we use as much time to find the nice things as we do finding the negative ones, we´ll always find something good.

Let´s go looking for the good things!! Write a comment and let everyone know what you´ve found.

    I love treasures on the beach too.
