Wallpaper Necklace #1

Textures made by the two wallpaper molds below. I put scrap polymer clay through the pasta machine until it was gray and used it as the base. Rolled out a sheet of the gray clay, laid Wallpaper Pattern A mold on the bottom and Wallpaper Pattern B mold on the top and gently pressed them into the raw clay. I used Pearl Ex Antique Copper to lightly highlight the pattern on both sides and then I cut out three sizes of circles. Poked a hole and baked them. Attached the copper jump rings and strung them on a coppery chain I purchased at Michael's. Wallpaper Pattern A above and Wallpaper Pattern B below Yeah, I'm baaaack and feelin good. Finally. On with the experiments.
