This magnificent polymer clay bead was created by well-known polymer clay artist Christi Friesen. This woman has unbelievable talent and is always creating something new and fun. Here is Christi's description of this bead: " 'Cockatoo' focal bead, accented with black onyx bead for eye. Hole horizontally through the top. About 1 1/4" in diameter. This bead is not the exact one in the Down Under book (book 5 in the Christi Friesen Sculpture series), but a second one I created for sale. Part of the aborigine-inspired section."
Christi Friesen teaches polymer clay classes all over the world, has written many books and I am very fortunate to have collected some of her beads. I have never used this bead has just been displayed. It is time for me to see some of my collections and this will give you a great opportunity to own a Christi polymer clay bead.
This cockatoo on this bead is so life like I keep waiting for it to talk to me. Beautiful sculpture work. Add it to your collection or create a magnificent necklace with this bead as the center piece.
