Polymer clay leaves

Polymer clay leaves

I learned this technique for making leaves with polymer clay at the February meeting of the Northwest Polymer Clay Guild. I also made some clay beads with the same pattern, and some plain silver clay beads. Then I strung it, making a pendant with a Swarovski Artemis bead, some seed beads on headpins, along with some little white and gold Czech glass beads.

The Lesson Bracelet

The Lesson Bracelet

I call this my Lesson Bracelet because it taught me to never let a piece leave the house without photographing it first! I had to stitch up this duplicate after losing my original bracelet at a nearby grocery store. I was on my way to a seedbeaders’ meeting, and it fell off in the store, and by the time I got back there it was gone, nobody turned it in. So now, I photocopy everything before wearing it.
This is a tubular herringbone stitch with buttons added.

Another watchband

I stitched this watchband with size 10 seed beads so I could add some peanut beads for texture, but they’re black and hard to see.

Vegan Art

I saw a postcard with faces of a pig, cow, and chicken, which gave me the idea for this piece. I needle felted the background, and used fabric for the little pond. I found the cow at a thrift store, and bought the rest of the pins on eBay.

Clay Owl

I was playing around with the clay, and thought the little squiggly brown ovals would make nice feathers. That’s how this owl got started.

Polymer Clay Pumpkins

Tiny pumpkins I made out of polymer clay (Sculpey). Not sure what to do with them, but they’re cute.
