Misty Moon Pendants

New Misty Moon pendants made with Premo Clay in a soft Heather shade.  I used a Mica Shift striae technique to give the Moon dimension.  The back of the pendant is a Mica Shift flower pattern done in a Grape/Purple color. I made my own Bezel setting out of silver clay with a carved Mica Shift design.

Etsy Treasuries Polymer Clay Jewelry

I love Etsy Treasuries!  You get a peek at an assortment of items, from different crafter's, that are all color coordinated. What fun!  My New Silver Leaf Earrings were included in this Treasury called "Have a Nice Sunday".
Silver Leaf Turquiose-Lime Earrings

These are reversible earrings, so you get 2 different looks in one! The front is a Silver-leaf, stamped design. Then I used Adirondack Alcohol Inks to add the watery greens & teals. After the first baking, I used clear liquid polymer to add depth & shine.

This is the reverse side, done in a Pearlized-Metallic Mokume Gane technique.
The Earrings are 20mm x 5mm thick, the edges are wrapped in a stacked stripe cane, done in the same blues, teals & lime.
My Polymer Teal/Cobalt Charm Bracelet is featured in this latest Etsy Treasury called "Teal the End of Time".I have so lucky to have my Jewelry appear in over 31 Etsy Treasuries so far.

What's New for 2011- Black & White Bangle

I love making Bracelets! Black & White with a hint of Limey-Olive is one of my favorite color schemes! This  bangle was made using Kato clay because it's so strong & it polishes up so nicely too! I used a large cookie cutter for the center of the bracelet & a flexible tissue blade to cut the outside curves. Lots of sanding & a couple coats of poly-varnish to finish.
My Bracelet won Second Place in Voila!
