Alenka's Blogoversary and Blog Hop

I was lucky enough to be introduced to Alenka (Pepita Handmade) through an earring swap a few months ago!  She makes amazingly cool polymer clay creations.  She announced a giveaway and blog hop a few months ago, and I am in!  She selected some components, put them in envelopes, and mailed them off to us, not knowing who got what!  This is what I received!

Alenka didn't even know what she sent me, so she's surprised reading about this!  I have an idea already, incorporating my own lampwork beads!  I also know these colors happen to be Alenka's favorite colors, so I think she'll like what I make!

I have to say, I really love this global community of beaders we have all created!  Alenka is really such a sweet wonderful person and I would have never known her or her art if it wasn't for facebook, blogs and blog hops!  It's fun! 

Please stop back on August 11th to see what I have made!

That component is awesome, Sue! I love Alenka's colours, so refreshing. I just received mine today, too, and I was thrilled with them!

That is a beautiful piece. Can't wait to see what you design with it.

Ooh that's a gorgeous component. Those zigzags are so much fun. I love the glow it seems to have from slight transluncency of some of the zigzags.

Art Elements Theme of the Month - January - Use Your Stash

Usually I'm so much better about the January Use Your Stash Challenge (hosted by Lindsay Starr this time), but this year, time is just not my friend. Between the holidays, going away on vacation, and getting back to work and trying to make new beads, there's just not a lot left in me at the end of the day.  But I did manage to get this pair of earrings made using Inviciti heart charms, some new metal spacer beads I just got, and some titanium hematite beads picked up at a Bead Fest here and there! I really like them, mostly because they are simple and hearts are my thing!  Check out what everyone else made! Thanks for stopping by!

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! More spirals in the form of polymer clay ammonite cabochons. I really love mixing the paints to color these! 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
