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. 🙂 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. 🙂 I bought all the new colors of Premo !!! Can’t wait to play with them some more.

Yetta’s Hollow Donut Cabachons

It’s a technique that Donna Kato learned from Yetta in New Jersey. As Donna said “Her (Yetta’s) solution is elegant, efficient, simple and pretty much foolproof.” I must say, I may not have a donut cutter (yet), but I see the possibilities with any cutter. And I am tickled to say that Donna used the silk screen stencils I made and sent to her last year on the donuts pictured below. 🙂
