A Master Of Complex Face Canes

Julie Eakes’ face canes are in one word outstanding !! She is the person who got all the attention a while back with her Obama cane. She was able to gift one of the pins she made to Senator Kathy Sgambati from New Hampshire, who Julie met at the Cabin Fever Festival. There is a picture of the two of them at Julie’s blog.

Be sure to take a few minuted to browse her Photobucket gallery. There are many canes shown that will amaze you. If I could have half of Julie’s talent I would consider it a blessing.

The Steampunk Phenomenon

Steampunk has edged it’s way into the polymer clay community. I love the idea of using old or unusual stuff and adding it into my work. Why throw it away if it can be salvaged for another use? The most common parts that show up in Steampunk are gears, cogs and other watch parts, but I’ve also seen chain, nail heads, eyelets, springs, zippers and much more. The possibilities are endless.

I’ve made a couple Steampunk pendants. Here’s my first try.

I scoured the internet for some examples of polymer clay Steampunk for your enjoyment.
