I got some great pieces out of a mokume gane' sheet that I used for some pendants. The above was made from the left over scraps. The inside of each piece was made from Sculpey UltraLight and baked. I then coated the baked UltraLight pieces with liquid clay and then covered them with the polymer scraps.

Fascinating artist, wonderful teacher, great class, good company and lots of fun. I learned some basic wet and needle felting. I made some beads, a small ring, a woven piece and covered a bar of soap (my favorite). More tomorrow.

I took an inclusion cane workshop from Sarah Shriver last week that was so much fun. She is a wonderful teacher and person. I am still working on my cane, but used some of it to cover a "tube" that I baked on a cable necklace. Fun to experiment and learn.

While at the hardware store (Home Depot), I spotted this rope in the chain, rope and cording section.
They cut it on a machine that heat seals the ends. I added some polymer clay and loved the big, bold look of it.

Paula S. Morgan's beautiful beaded snowflake pattern is brought to you by Beadwork.about.com (click HERE). Hang as a stunning ornament or attach to a ribbon for a bookmark. Or how about a gift topper? Large earrings and pendant? Just sayin.

HERE). I sold it over the weekend at the art fair. It was kind of lost in the rest of the jewelry lying on the sale table, but as soon as I hung it on one of the display boxes by itself, it sold.

I ordered some wooden stacking trays from Nilecorp.com (click HERE) to display my jewelry. Small wooden slats were glued to the inside top to accommodate small cup hooks and sawtooth hangers were nailed to the back. I received many compliments on the clean design that uniquely showcased each individual piece.
I had a great location at the entrance of the art fair and arranged my booth walls so it had two entrances/exists. With plenty of room to shop, I was fortunate to sell out of the polymer clay pieces early in the day.

Hanging from the ceiling were extremely large felt/fiber art works. Can't go wrong combining art with shopping.
