A new idea

A while back I came up with an idea to use grommets for building beads.  I don't often make beads beacause I don't do them well or consistently, atleast not until I started using grommets for the ends. I mainly made earrings using this method until recently.  I saw an interesting scrap of clay on my work table and immediately I was inspired to do something with a "Tribal" feel.

I'll post the finished necklace soon.

A wonderful gift

Every year we do a gift exchange between members of The Southern Ontario Polymer Clay Guild.  I received my gift a little bit late but it was well worth the wait.  This pendant was made by Barbara Coulatti. It is on a silk cord and it has sterling silver findings. I totally admire all of Barbara's work, her work always has an impeccable finish!  I don't think Barbara has much of an on-line presence yet unfortunately but I'll let you know when and if she does get one.  Thanks Barbara.
