Rugged Bangles

Rustic and lots of fun.  Polymer clay bangles I textured and layered with acrylic paints to create the dark and bright pops of color.

Polymer Clay Adventure

 I'm still in the process of creating and compiling gifts.  They will be part of the Polymer Clay Adventure Online Retreat giveaways which will occur throughout this year via contests and challenges.  I made the above Rugged Beauty Beads and strung them on rubber cording with a Sterling Silver clasp.  The necklace is included in the first package of tools and molds I'm donating.  My class is not until the last quarter of 2015, but I'm sending a few goodies on and off throughout the year.  You can read more about the online retreat by clicking HERE.  You can still join the fun at any time.
I cannot believe it is January 8 already.  This first week as flown by.  I'm heading out to California for a few days of R&R.  Hope your new year is off to a great start!!!!

Happy Holidays

Wishing you and yours the very best of holidays.  Peace, health, little moments of joy, smiles, giggles and connections.  Yes, I know "connections" is an odd thing to wish, but I think you know what I mean.  Those precious moments when someone touches your heart,  you let them all the way in for that split second of connecting.  I want more of those, I want to give those moments, I want you to know I appreciate you.  Thank you for stopping by my blog or Facebook page.  Thank you for being creative and sharing and connecting.  You can tell I watched "It's a Wonderful Life" with Jimmy Stewart.  But, seriously, thank you for giving me the gift of your company.

Secret Teapot House

I started this little Secret Teapot House about a year ago.  Above is as far as I got.  I was encouraged by a fellow polymer clay artist to complete some teapots.  So, this one was at the top of the list.
 I added the windows and the first coat of Raw Umber.  When dry I added some highlights to the rocks and some green.  It is about halfway done.
I am hoping to post the rest by end of week.

Peppermint Twist

 Polymer clay peppermint candy charms and crystals tied in a pretty ribbon of "Ho Ho Ho".  The bead crochet necklace can be worn with or without the charms.   Happy December.
The "Peppermint Twist" bead crochet pattern can be found HERE.

Spacers or …..

I've been spacing out lately so I thought the polymer clay spacer beads would be apropos.  I spent a day making spacers and loaded some on a couple of cable necklaces.  Again, they look like oversized Heishi beads to me; which I love.   I'm sure you are all heading out shopping, looking for lots of good deals on this Black Friday.  So be off, have fun, be safe and sing "Dashing Through the Dough" while you shop.
