This is a 'Natasha bead' invented by Natasha. The great thing about it is that it turns out different every time - a one of a kind original bead. It's kind of magical. The patterns that emerge look quite intricate but it is actually just scraps of left over polymer clay lumped together. You can't really plan a design , just maybe move the clay bits around when you smoosh them together. It ends up having a mirror image on each surface of the bead. It's like an abstract painting, the colors flowing and blending and falling into their own pattern. I still have to sand and buff this bead.
