Mod Cane Necklace

This was a fun project today. It is a combination of mobius and pillow beads. I saw the technique on Cindy Lietz's site this weekend and it gave me ammo to work on something new.
The picture is not all that great, but I like how this ste came out. Nothing like several techniques tucked into one to come up with a new necklace. :-)

New Pendants

I made these sets today. What fun mixing clay with gold leaf, with inks. These sets were fun. I may have to do some more as they are all unique. I don't make many sets so these were fun.
The concept came from a video by Cindy Lietz. I just changed it up a little bit. Of course they are so light.

Jack the Candlestick

Ok, so check it out!!!!! I actually completed a sculpt. Irrigardless how wierd it looks, LOLOL I actually finished a sculpt. This one was from a class by Dawn Schiller called Candlestick Jester class. Mine is a bit different because my candlestick is smaller and my dowel was larger. LOL So all in all Jack had to be improvised when it came time to put him together.
What has me all excited is that I actually did a sculpt. It tool me a while nad he is NOT by any means perfect, but he is a sculpt and I did it. And the best part of all??? HUBBY DIDN'T CALL HIM A TURD FUNGAS. LOLOL In case you haven't been reading my blog, that was the name my hubby gave one of my earlier attempts at a bonzai tree. In fact, he was right, but I still have that first attempt and will nto part with it.
This class was an online one that I paid for a while ago, (three months actually) and just now had the time to try and put him together. I am very excited, even though he looks a bit strange. HEY, no comments from the peanut gallery. LOLOLOL All greats had to start somewhere, right? Dang straight!!!
