The rose bib

I made dozens of polymer clay roses last week, and was intending to turn them into individual pendants. But after seeing them bunched together after baking, I realized they'd look pretty neat if turned into a big necklace.

This bib took me 18 straight hours to make. Twelve roses - about 81 petals total- each carefully formed by hand. You can only imagine how many squished and deformed roses never made it into the oven. Because of fatigue, I could no longer feel my fingers during the last few hours of the project. My fingers remained swollen the day after. It's worth it though. I almost don't want to part with this piece.
