Took a while to figure out how to get this to hang properly.
Close up of long beads... they remind me of caterpillars... hence the name.
I originally planned to use the large tile at the bottom on another necklace, I tried it here and liked it so here it will stay.
It is a large necklace, the tile is 1 1/2" x 4" wide. It looks good on a solid colored top. I am pleased with the final result.
And here is my latest Polymer Clay and Wire, Mixed Media Critter. I love this Fish!!
With most of my critter I make a wire frame and then add the polymer clay. This time I made the fish body and then added the wire elements.
I also made new canes. I have been combining Premo with Kato Pearl to get the colors I want and then add a small amount of Pardo Art Clay , usually white, to firm the clay. It's a bit difficult to get the Pardo to mix with the other clays, it has a tendency to flake and shred but do not give up, continue running though the pasta machine.... it takes 25 to 30 passes, but it is worth the effort.
I used the one in the lower left to make the other four. I know, strange colors and I may have over reduced a bit but I think they will make interesting beads.
I'm getting better at flower canes, the red one is not so great but I like the other two. Packing the translucent is important with flower canes and I rushed on the red one.
The two square canes are made from the round cane. I've made similar canes before only in different colors.
More from the same cane only round this time.
The "Making new canes from old canes" is almost finished. Yes indeedy, I should be posting it soon!!
Thanks for stopping by.
