Clay leftovers and cutters

Like probably all of us, I have loads of clay leftovers, cane ends, dirty clay pieces, etc.

I separated all my leftovers into groups of different colours, and mixed every group into one colour. I ended up with a lovely collection of muted colours:


Also I had a great number of various little cutters, most of which I never used:


The muted tones of clay leftovers reminded me of retro floral patterns, so after combining my beautiful clay leftovers and those tiny cutters here what came out:

Multicolour necklace:

If you didn't like the patterns of the beads, you can wear a necklace from a wrong side:))


Bright patterns of black background:


A few pendants in retro style :)


And just red and white beads

That is it for now :))
