Well, these were interesting. They are plant starters from test tubes. Another Poly Clay Play project that I just couldn't resist. The tubes have mokume gane technique. I love doing that. I used shades of green, yellow and blue clay for that portion. The hardest part was the hangers. Making S curves is not my forte so they look rather crazy, but it was still fun. I am thinking of making more of these and giving as gifts. Still have to think that one through. anyway, they were fun.

This little cutie is a birthday gift to my niece who is turning four years old. She loves pink and I thought this seahorse would be just the ticket. I made her into a pin so she can wear it and packed it in a small clay covered pink Altoid tin. We are having a family party for her and her brother today and I will give it to her then.
What fun this was. I think I will make more of these.
Between school and work, I actually have had some time to clay. It has been a hectic time, but I am determined to spend some time at what I love. The tulip necklace I am quite proud of. It is Christi Frieson inspired and I am selling it on my website at ladyraine.com. I am loving getting into the intricate more elaborate necklaces. this one was made with clay and lots of fun beads and frillies. I really had a lot of fun with this.
Christi is such a talented lady and her work is so inspiring. I plan on doing a lot more of these types of necklaces with different alterations.
