More shells from Diane Woodall's and Becky Mason's small shell tutorial, this time sea urchins. These are relatively easy; just make a round bead, flatten the bottom, and place dots on the top section:
The dark green beads are made with Commando (CIM 475), while the light green are made with Lichen (Vetrofond 986). I tried dots of raku (upper righ0t, but I think I like dots of silvered ivory better (the remaining beads). I'm coming up with some good ideas about how to use these in jewelry, so visit my web site (etsy.com/shop/DeborahDRoss) in a month or two.
