Polymer Clay Art Deco & More Scrap Art

My right eye cataract surgery was last thursday. All went well, more "sticky goo" as expected. I will have laser surgery in a couple months to remove the goo and then I will be as good as new.  In the mean time my sight is greatly improved and I use dime store reading glasses for close up work.

I have been working on more scrap pieces and some fun art deco designs.

Click on the photos for a closer look.

This is more Kathi scraps... I made small charm beads to go with the focal bead.

Mirror images from Kathi scraps.  These are so much fun.  What do you see? In the first one I see a bear head above a skeleton wearing a turban... in the second I see a squirrel.

Another scrap pendant with matching tube bead.

Art Deco tiles in purple and teal.  I mixed purple and blue with silver to get these colors. The one on the left has been sanded, I liked the shimmer of the one on the right so didn't sand it. 

This one is made from left over scraps from the two above.

I used one of my old canes to make this mirror image pendant. I love the colors in this one.  The smaller one was made from the scraps. I rolled a ball, formed an egg shape, ran it through the pasta machine, then folded in half and pinched in the center.  There is a different design on the reverse. 

More scrap pieces.  Sanded and buffed.  I will use the two matching tiles for earrings. 

I used textured sheets on the backs, it gives them a nice finish and saves on sanding. 

I have also made quite a few beads, I will show you those in a day or two. Thanks for stopping by.
