Judy Belcher purchased one of my Inchie necklaces. Polymer clay artist, Lynne Schmitt took a photo and recently sent it to me. I'm thrilled to have it, thank you Lynne.
Some of the new inchies for 2014 was Minion from Despicable Me, Sponge Bob, Zombie Pumpkin and Crazy Haired Zombies. I hope people will like them. I really had fun making them.
Each inchie was bagged with one of my cards in a zip lock bag.

The Polymer Arts has a magazine for professional and aspiring polymer clay artists ... by polymer artists for polymer artists. They also have a blog and a Facebook page. I was thrilled to see one of my pieces featured July 26 on their Facebook page and then realized I was part of their Design series on their blog. You can read more about "Mixing Elements" HERE.

To download the pattern, right click on the above photo and choose "download".
It took me four times to see the rhythm of the zig zag pattern. I feel funny saying that because it is probably apparent to anyone else, but for me it was trial and error. Anyway, it is a fun pattern for summer and I hope you enjoy it.

So, on the 4th try of drafting this pattern, I think I have it. And, yes, it took crocheting about 3" to 4" all four times before the mistakes surfaced. Rip out, re-string and start again. Happy now. I will clean up the pattern and post it sometime this week.

Playing around with color samples. I ended up tearing it out because I wanted a more complex pattern, but then regretted it. I had photographed it, ripped it up, put away my loom and thought I would post later. Now that I see it, I love the bold colors with this pattern. Pattern is from CraftsPeople (click HERE).
