I always have scraps on my work table and it's hard for me to toss them in the scrap bags so I make beads instead.
Click on the photos for a closer look.
A couple tiles and some swirly beads in shades of green and brown.
More swirly beads and a pendant tile in magenta, red and blue.
A mirror image pendant and matching beads in ambers and reds on a sage green background.
Another mirror image tile and beads in green and black. I used scraps from one of the border canes I posted earlier. I love this shade of green. I am going to make more beads so I can make a necklace.
A variety of shapes and sizes in yellow and red. These were all made from scraps. I think of them as "end of day" beads.... guess I should say "end of month" beads cause the scraps have been laying around for a month of more.
Okay I can show you one ATC... This is my first attempt at a Artist Trade Card.... it got a little to thick so I'm not going to use it in the swap but it was fun to practice on....
Okay, now my table is cleaned of scraps so I can get out fresh clay and get to work. I need to mix some colors and maybe do some canes.... we'll see. Now that the holidays are over I plan to blog more often.
Thanks for stopping by. Comments and questions are always welcome.
