Artisan Clay Design Team - Next to Last Reveal


I'm part of Kristie Roeder's Artisan Clay Design Team! Sadly, this will be the next to the last reveal day we have - she's going to close the group with the next challenge. I made these earrings with the components she sent me this month! I love them! I was thinking of making two bracelets with the components, but I really wanted earrings! I made the beads especially to go with the gorgeous colors in the charms! You can visit Kristie's blog here! And you should visit her etsy store here - she has some really really pretty things going on in that store! I love the "bursts" in Oatmeal that she has listed right now! Please visit her blog to see what everyone else in the group made! And thank you, Kristie, for having me as part of your team! I enjoyed it, and I love your work!

I have a set of charms very much like those. I just have not used them and I don't know why. I will go fish them out this weekend and see if I can get the muse to strike! Enjoy the day!

I would totally wear these earrings everyday! They remind me of the turquoise pool pendant that I tied a cord on a few years ago and wouldn't take off for months... purple-goes with turquoise... black-goes with turquoise.... brown-heck yeah!... :-)

Thanks Shannon!
Sue,
Those are very pretty earrings I love the colors.

Happy Accident!

Months ago, I took a class at ArtBliss given by Barbara Lewis of Painting with Fire. It involved learning how to make torch-fired enamel beads. I loved it - as you may be able to guess. Barbara did teach us how to fuse items into a flat pendant, but we didn't spend a lot of time on that process, as the day seemed to go so fast! I was making enameled pieces the other night, and due to my own ineptness (remember the big toe burn???) I was able to fuse these two pieces together totally by accident. Now of course, it isn't a usable piece. However, now that I know how to do it, I can see some pieces like this in my future! I can't wait to get more copper cutouts!

Art Elements February Theme Challenge - Birds of Prey

Cathy Mendola chose Birds of Prey for the theme this month, and it's a pretty awesome theme. You are going to see some amazing work by my team members and the guests who have participated this month! I had plans of doing more than I did, as indicated by the purchases I made for the projects I had in my head. However, I have been doing some work in my house, so whenever time permitted, meaning after work and weekend hours, we were pretty much doing the room renovations. One of them is going to be my study/studio, and I seem to be foiled at every move by trying to get some work tables. So I have only one small project to show you this month.  But first, the purchases!

This first Bali carved owl totem I got from fifirosedesigns on etsy - I wanted to make a mold and make my own cabochon to use in a necklace. However, I really did get around to doing that. So, I purchased the owl heads below.

These owl head cabochons are from ArtisticVariations84 on etsy - they are just fantastic, but …

January Art Elements Theme Challenge - Moon

Lindsay Starr chose moon as the theme for the AE Design Challenge this month! Great choice, Lindsay! I knew I had a pendant from Vincent and Nooma from Inviciti that I wanted to use, and I have some moon face polymer clay cabochons I had made a while ago, so I was all set!

First, I used the pendant to create a simple necklace. I haven't strung beads in a very long time, and being that I enjoy simple designs for myself, I set out to find the perfect red beads. I chose faceted red jade from Golden Age Beads.  I also spied some other beads I really want, but am basically on a buying freeze so....maybe another time! I separated the red jade beads with some cute titanium spacers I had picked up at a bead show a long time ago, and I highlighted the pendant with some gold alcohol ink to make the moon show up better!



The second piece I made was influenced by Game of Thrones. Late to the party as ever, I just started watching it. I'm on Season 3 Finale - I use it as a carrot to make my…
