Searching through my bead stash the other day I found a lovely mother of pearl disc bead that inspired a sea-theme for my next Goddess. The disc became her belly and I found a mother of pearl heart and a pale blue swirly polymer clay face to go with it. Along with some tiny shells, a paua shell disc bead, a couple of freshwater pearls and some stick coral I created 'Salacia'.
Salacia was the wife of Neptune, God of the sea in Roman mythology. My version is finished with swirls of blue and silver seed beads and some twisty 'seaweed' strands.
