Colored Wire & Polymer Clay

I  have been working on ATC's all week but I did manage to make a couple things with wire.

I made a tile from canes and added matching wire to make this brooch.

Click on the photos for a closer look.

I can't decide how to use the wire piece with this Mokume Gane Scottie  dog.  Does it look better this way?

or this way?  I still have to sand the pooch and drill holes to attach the wire work. 

and last, I finally go around to backing my bluebird.... I must have tried a dozen different background and settled for this one.... still not thrilled but it looks pretty good. 

That's it for today.  

Thanks for stopping by. 


  1. Wow, beautiful! I love the bird in particular!

  2. Thank you, I appreciate the kind words!

  3. They are great. I would say if Scottie is going to be a pendant, the second way works better for me. If he is going to be a broach, then the first way as it looks like a little handbag (purse). The bluebird is amazing - the swirls work really well together.

  4. These are all wonderful, I especially love the bird!

  5. The top one, Beej. With the wire making an arc. :D

  6. I agree with Moe. The top Scottie is my favorite. As always, your creativity is amazing.

  7. I'm thinking the first Scottie too..... thanks guys! Beej

  8. BJ, everything is so pretty. I love your wire work. How about doing a wire tutorial. I know a lot of people would love it. Vicky (vedwards143) at PCC
