Polymer Clay Play

In a previous post I posted about polymer clay and some cuffs that I had made.  I also made rather a large amount of beads.  I am now tasked with using these beads in my beadwork.  To that end I am happy to present 'Autumn's End' - a collaboration of seeds beads and polymer clay - the clasp is magnetic.  I will list this shortly in my Etsy shop.

More beads to be made up

New obsession

I have learnt a new skill and now have a new obsession - woven leather bracelets!  Just loving making these at the moment and have loads of ideas for more:

Time to let go

Have you ever made something and then not wanted to part with it?  I can see you nodding.

My hard to part with piece is a necklace that I first made for the Beads Direct Football World Cup comp.  I came 2nd overall in that one.  I then entered this piece in the Beads & Beyond Magazine 2010 Jewellery Maker of the Year 2010 comp - and came 2nd in that one too.  (I know - always a bridesmaid .....and all that - my time will come!!!).

Anyway I have finally listed this piece for sale in my Etsy store after more than a year.  If it sells I only hope that it will go to someone who loves it as much as I do.

Without further ado - I present 'Enrichment'

Long time no bead!

Its been a while since I blogged - sorry guys.

Something weird has happened to me in that I have lost some of my urge for beading - haven't touched a needle in ages!  Maybe it's some kind of mid-life crisis or something.  Hope it goes away soon.

I have however been a little creative and have got the polymer clay out.  I am having a lot of fun making beads and cuffs at present and will post piccies as I can.  In the meantime, have a look at these and tell me what you think.
