Teeny Polymer Clay Sea Urchin Molds and Beads

I've been spending some time this week creating smaller sizes of sea urchin beads from polymer clay. I'm also offering the molds as well so that anyone can craft realistic pieces for their summer or other craft.
For the sea urchins the sizes measure from a scant 18mm (shown) to 35mm. Sizes are approximate since one can slightly distort the beads smaller or larger from the mold. The small one here is a little smaller than a penny.(CDN and US pennies are the same size)
Different starfish molds are also available. Sizes are 30mm to 65mm. I've listed these in my ArtFire.

Baubles and Polymer Clay - revisiting past times

I was digging through my photo archives I found these cats pins from 2000. They were probably the most 'cutesy' thing I've done, lol.

Or how about some Lizards, Fish, Starfish from 2001. The top two have images behind the bauble, the bottom two have texture.

Some of these turtles have images, drawings and others have canes.
And then there are Angels, and Mythical...I used to sell those in little leather bags, but I incorporated them as vessel tops also...

These bauble pendants gave rise to my 'Aquarium pendants', photographic images behind glass and movable objects between the glass and photo, to give the piece 'movement'. Of course they weren't made with glass baubles as I needed something a bit larger. I had tried the larger glass baubles, but they often have flaws and the backs of them aren't perfectly smooth.

I should re-visit the good olde days more often, lol.
