Now that our vacation is a fading memory, I'm back in my studio working on some polymer clay and beadweaving.
A few months ago, I made this first attempt at a polymer clay picture:
It was a good first attempt... I liked it. I kept it out on my worktable so I could work out the mental puzzle of how to use it.
I started by gluing the clay oval to some ultrasuede and beaded around it. Pretty!
A simple spiral rope with sterling silver end caps and clasp is the finishing touch.
I'm delighted with the finished result - bright Spring colors, and the toned-down browns of the rope balance it nicely.
This little beauty is currently listed for sale in my Etsy shop.
