Summer doughnut - greek edition miniature necklace

Since I'm surviving through long hot days at home this summer I really miss going for a swim... I recollect last summer's vacations on my beloved Samothraki island:

The goat is actually the symbol of the island

Refreshing clear and cold water at the cataract Paradisos

Fresh yummy calamari              

A huge dentex we had the honor to enjoy...

... perfect!

I also recall all these afternoons when we were kids on the beach that we used to have a special kind of doughnut after a long swim and infinite games in the water...


So I crafted a miniature one out of polymer clay for old times shake I guess... :-)

Although it doesn't look baked enough!

       I cut around the pills in a heart shape:

      Made holes on both sides using a thick needle:

      Connected the beads:

       Et voila my new bracelet!
