The polymer clay mosaic sections of this bracelet may look time consuming, but in fact, all five pieces took only two hours to create. The technique utilizes small strips of clay positioned onto a clay background, which are then impressed with tile lines which create the illusion of separate tiny tesserae. (I was introduced to this strip mosaic technique in wonderful class I took from Amelia Helm.) To cut the time even further, I have added crystal rhinestones to my collage pieces.
