Mine was the Purple/Blue/Gold polymer clay bead wrapped with wire & beads.
Condition your clay and mix the three colors together, be careful not to over mix. Roll it through your pasta machine on the thickest setting and cut in half and stack on top of each other. Then lay unmounted stamp, design up, place stacked clay on top and then lay an unmounted stamp, face down and brayer over it. Then I cut the shape with a small clay cutter, like a cookie cutter. Inserted the skrew to make hole through one end and baked according to manufacturers directions. After they were cooled, I coated them with Future Floor wax and allowed them to dry over night. Then I used 20 gauge wire and E-Beads and wrapped the wire with the beads around the polymer clay bead.
