The focus this past week was to finish some new polymer clay jewelry. I thoroughly enjoy making the canes, and if I had my way, that's all I'd do, day in and day out. My new plan is to only make canes one day a week, leaving the rest of the week to do the finishing work.
I made another green pendant and listed it in my Etsy shop again.
My favorite cane of the week was a pink, green, purple, and tan floral number. It reminds me of a vintage stained glass window.
It made a lovely pendant.
In my box of shibori ribbons, I found this purple and fuchsia piece that really packs a punch. Perfect!
While I was putting together the pink and green pendant, I started playing with more pieces from that cane with thoughts of making a larger pendant from them.
The finished piece is huge, about 4 inches across, and has many flaws, so I don't feel comfortable trying to sell it. I'm going to hang it on my wall for inspiration, as well as a reminder to be super careful when putting something like this together. It's loaded with fingerprints, little nicks from my nails, and also has some air bubbles that showed up during baking.
Even so, it's a pretty thing, and I'll enjoy looking at it.
I've got some new beads sanded, buffed, and acrylic-coated to be turned into bracelets and earrings this week. I love my job!
