Fun with Polymer Clay

This weekend all of the usual Silver Art Clay people took on a new challenge of creating with Polymer Clay. We went to Sophia's house, the one in the blue t-shirt, to learn the basics of making a circle box that you can wear as a pendant. It was a lot of fun, I never realized that Polymer Clay could be so beautiful. I must admit that I had kind of a play dough attitude towards it. She created a green and yellow pattern with a chocolate brown background (amazing!). The technique she used is called Mokumé Gané. Sophia also works with what she calls "mud clay". It was so much fun walking around her house and looking at all of her pieces which consisted of pottery, jewelry, etc. Even though the clay conditioning, running it through the pasta machine, was hard work I plan on doing it again sometime soon!

I made this bracelet for my friend Katharine. I have been in a bracelet making frenzy . I actually decided to take a picture of it on her arm so that everyone could get some perspective of what it looks like on. Thanks Katharine for being kind enough to pose for the camera.

I just realized that I haven't posted in over a month. Opps! I recently made a bunch of silver art clay tags for the leather cuffs. This one is for my friend Stacey for her birthday. Hope she likes it, I'm giving it to her today at lunch!
