The Return of My Muse

I think my Muse likes to escape to a warmer climate in the Winter, because I rarely find the motivation to be creative when it’s cold and cloudy, but I believe my muse has returned from her vacation. At least for the time being. šŸ™‚ I have actually finished several jewelry pieces in the last couple weeks. I even sanded and buffed them all and my friends know how much I looooove sanding. NOT !! LOL

First I made a couple bangle bracelets made using my Scrap Mokume Gane technique. This is a picture of one (they are very similar is looks)

Then I made 5 pendants using Mokume Gane technique which were inspired by the arrival of Julie Picarello’s new book, Patterns in Polymer Clay.

And I finally tried my hand at an idea that’s been swimming around my brain for a while. Hollow Domed Pendants with inset Swarovski crystal. Though I did use dichroic cabs in two of the six I made.

That’s all for now. I hope the creative juices are still flowing. I brought home a bag of clay from Michael’s today. Part of my birthday shopping spree. šŸ™‚ I bought all the new colors of Premo !!! Can’t wait to play with them some more.

    Beautiful pieces! I especially like the bangle…great colors in there! I am so happy that your muse has returned! I hate it when she leaves. Mine is so far gone right now. I don’t even like polymer clay anymore. My beads have lost their appeal to me. What to do? What to do? Hope she comes back like yours did šŸ™‚

    Lovely work! Love the bangle! I’ve been having issues with my muse for a couple of months. As soon as the weather warms up all she wants to do is go play outside!
