I made this particular bead on the beach of Galveston. Our family had gathered for a small family reunion on my husband’s side, and I had brought some clay to mess around with, as I often do when I travel.
I usually keep my nails fairly short, because it is difficult not to leave marks in clay when they are longer. Plus, it is hard to get the clay out from underneath the nails.
However, this time I decided to make the most of it because, well, why not? The end of my nail was a perfect half circle.
