Adventures in self-color-changing cane-making

Despite not really enjoying the idea of making the exact same cane twice, I put on my big girl panties this past week and forced myself to sit down and re-create a millefiori cane I had used up: the Rainbow Afghan. And good thing, too, because it was an excellent addition to my demonstration for the Philadelphia Area Polymer Clay guild yesterday. Also, Neil’s eye is on the mend.

Gigantic swampy earrings

Polymer clay at the library

So, I guess you’re wondering where I wandered off to, eh? Well, it’s been such a crazy busy week here, and much of what I’ve been doing has been un-photograph-worthy, and frankly, really boring to talk about. One noteworthy thing I did do, was teach a class at the local library on Thursday evening. And […]

Eye candy

Please forgive the less-than-stellar photography on these – I plan to spend some time making them look pretty in pictures after I’ve drilled the holes and strung them on cords.  I don’t know how long that will take and I didn’t want to wait to post these! So this first image is of the pendant […]
