Art Elements Component of the Month with Jennifer Cameron

You may have noticed that we changed our name and look over at Art Jewelry Elements - we are now Art Elements.  Read all about it!


Also it's time for the October Component of the Month - this month, Jennifer Cameron provided us with these cute sugar skulls! I managed to take a photo of mine this time, before I made my necklace!

I love the colors she used, and wanted to make a colorful necklace as well! Here's what I made, using seed beads and czech flowers!  I think it's fun!




I was so happy to be able to use these czech flowers, as I am currently obsessed with them. I went to Prague this summer but was not able to find any czech beads for purchase!

Thanks to Jen for the sugar skull inspiration!  Check out what everyone else made!

What a great idea to use the Czech flowers in colors to accent the skull. I love the way it all works together. Bright and cheerful!

Oh that flower hat is adorable! Colorful, wearable... really fun necklace!

Oh, I also thought about using czech bead flowers! They fit beautifully with the skull! I have also a kind of obsession with them, especially the tiny ones (8mm). I can send you the info where I order them (directly from the production site, but you always need to buy a lot).

Art Elements Theme Challenge - August - Swirls

This month Marsha Neal chose swirls as the theme of the month! I'm enjoying the challenges as themes. I've been giving my wrist a break because of perceived carpal tunnel, so I've been doing a lot in polymer, and by a lot, I mean when I have a few half hours of time! Here are the swirl themed polymer items I made for this month! This first one reminds me of a fiddlehead fern, all closed up. I painted it with alcohol inks. This next one is the before of the ammonite hearts I did. Two of my favorite things, ammonites and hearts! Colored with alcohol inks.  I made two, the colors turned out very different!

Plus you get a gratuitous flower shot!  More ammonites colored with ranger patina inks and alcohol inks in that order.  My fave, I think - I love the colors! Alcohol inks. This next one was made with acrylic paint and I tried crackle on it, d
