Faux Geodes Continued...

I'm creating more Faux Geode pieces again!
This time it's a pendant consisting of 5 very thin cane
slices in varied shapes, colors & sizes. I used
Pardo Jewelry clay to achieve the translucent Turquiose
& Olive Green shades. Added to each color is a
generous portion of my favorite Translucent Pardo.
The light shines through the sheer slices & illuminates them

Earthy Organics Collection

My new Earthy Organics collection was inspired by my love of nature
and plants. I experimented with some textural plaid designs in the 
Organic Orbs. The colors I used are rich earth tones, reminiscent of 
soft mossy greens, bark browns & turquiose stone. I love the colors
available in the Pardo Professional clay line. The Turquiose is especially nice to
work with, as it is quite transparent. I also added some Faux Obsidian for
contrast, and a bit of Faux Sea Sponge to bring in some hi-lights.
Blown-Glass hollow beads bring another punchof turquiose to the piece.
The necklace is constructed with pewter-look findings, which lends
a matte/natural appearance to the metal.

Polymer Clay Kitty Cat Teapot

Black & White Kitty-Cat Teapot stands only 
 3 1/2" tall and is sculpted from Fimo polymer clay over a 
small appliance light-bulb. I used an assortment of my 
handmade black & white canes
to decorate the little fellow. The tiny teapot will actually 
hold water & can be used as a vase too!
