Okay here are my new necklaces:

First is a polymer clay pod and leaf pendant to which I added a wire and bead leaf and made a chain with rainbow fluorite beads, lacy silver ball beads and bead caps and amethyst colored wire.
Next is a long focal mirror image bead with a wrapped wire scroll at the top. It measures 5" including the scroll. At the bottom I added a matching bead adorned with copper beads and wire. I completed the necklace with copper chain... I may change that. Heather likes the plain chain but I'm not so sure, I think it needs something on the other side. What do you think?
I also added wire elements to three polymer clay pieces to make these brooches. The heart has a cutout in the upper left so by adding a cord it can be worn as a pendant.
Heather needed coaster for her bedroom so she made these from clay she carefully sorted from the scrap bags. I don't have the patience to sort through the colors, I like to squish and twist to make mirror images. They turned out really nice and match her bedroom colors perfectly. She really should do more with polymer clay, don't you agree?
I'm working on more mixed media pieces but I ran out of the right colors and gauges of wire so I'm once again waiting on an order. I am also working on a "New Canes from Old Canes tutorial". Thought I was almost done but I'm not happy with the photos so I'm starting over.
