These are polymer clay beads. I didn’t make them and I haven’t used them yet. I might end up keeping them in their own little stash though, just for those colours and for the miniscule flowers. I did make the little earthenware bowl though, many years ago in pre-baby days at a residential pottery course near Flookburgh.
I just had some fun making a quick mosaic with some sumptuous red images from the Flickr pool. For some reason these gorgeous reds make me hungry

Thankyou to Val who tutored me in the ways of Big Huge Labs. The Splashes of Colour will continue until Monday so there’s still time to join in, pop your blog on the linky two posts back and hop over to the other bloggers in the colour party.
There’ll be more mosaics to come…

I love all that red :)!!! It really does brighten the winter up.
Yay, you did it – looks lovely!
Have had a slightly traumatic day dealing with a vomiting child – not my own – in the lunch hall at school. They *really* don't pay me enough for that …
A lovely festive-coloured mosaic! 🙂
The beads are beautiful, I like the pretty flowers so much! Thank you for including me in the red photo mosaic, the flickr group has so many gorgeous photos! 🙂 x
Love the bowl, can we see all of it? The red images are great too, very seasonal and very cleverly put together.
I'm so glad you included the link for making the mosaics, I've been wondering for ages how people do them! Love all the reds :-).
Greaat mosaic!!! Love the RED, it says it all!!!! The beads are so beautiful and delicate….I would keep them too! Love the pottery. xo Robin
Darn It! I just can't get my act together enough to take colorful pictures. Yours are BEAUTIFUL though, so that's good enough for me!
I love the red mosaic too. What a good idea.
I've joined in with your Splash of Colour Emma, come and have a look :o)

Lovely photos – I do love red it is so bright and cheery. I might have to try some mosaics, sounds as if Big Huge Labs would be worth a look.
do you mind if i knit says
Those polymer beads are like little jewels aren't they? And so gorgeous in your gorgeous bowl. Isn't big huge labs fab! Love Vanessa xxx
You made the bowl? It's beautiful! The beads are lovely too but it was the bowl that caught my eye. Thanks for the very cheery mosaic – off to visit the flickr group and feast my eyes some more!

God I am SO LATE for this. I shall stare at stuff all day tomorrow, willing it to be colourful.
Red and white delight – love it!
I love the image of your beads with your ceramic bowl, really beautiful xox

I love the translucency of your bowl Emma, and the beads really compliment it. Lovely Red mosaic.
I have just put this month's splash of colour on my blog. Late I know, but I had a sudden flash of inspiration!

I love the ceramic beads sooo much! And the red mosaic quite takes my breath away – such luscious colour! Helen x
It's delectable – all of it! I am going to revisit those beads again and again… xoxo

Thank you for your comment Emma – I am very happy for you to put the image in a mosaic. I guess if you just click on the photo and do a 'Save As' to your own site you can do it from there …. Must find out about setting up a Flickr account – at the moment it is beyond my somewhat limited capabilities!!!
Have a lovely day.
