Mixed media is back | Polymer Clay Daily. Tanya Mayorova’s mixed media combo will appeal to anyone who has been wondering what to do with a stash of unused beads. She wraps a mix of beads threaded on wire around polymer big-hole beads which have been stamped and given a metallic sheen. Tanya is from Russia and now lives in Spain. You’ll find lots more of her rich mixes of color and texture and media on Flickr.
