2012 Thing A Day Day 18 Brown & Teal

I love these colors together, in fact I like brown with almost all colors. I showed you what I was working on yesterday.... here is the results. I used the cane scraps and a piece of extra clay to make the two pins.... or maybe pendants.

I do have plans for the all the border canes I've been making... I want to try my hand at bangle bracelets... the plan is floating around in my head...

Click on the photos for a closer look.

I made the oval one first...  I used wire to secure the beads and the side scroll.

 I got my order from Cool Tools, they sucked me in with another sale....or was it free shipping?  I can't remember.... I need to have a talk with whoever is in charge.... they have to quit making new texture sheets, I can't resist, I have to have them, my drawer is full, now I have to buy new drawers... I may have to go back to work just to afford my texture sheet habit!

So, I used the new texture sheet with waves and highlighted the raised areas with bronze PearlEx.  You can see why I had to have it.... right?

The 2nd is made with the scraps from the first.... I bet you already noticed that.   I"m not sure this one is done I may add some wire, I like the way it looks now  but a little wire couldn't hurt.

I sanded the sides and backs of both of these but still have to add pin backs or bails.

And I used a couple of my previous "Thing A Day" things to make a necklace.  I added faceted amber crystal beads and colored wire with the disk beads for the side chains and completed the necklace with copper chain.  I have a mustard yellow top that looks really good with this.

Time for my nap.

Thanks for stopping by.


  1. I love your new pieces. I too am a texture addict and have recently discovered Cool Tools. I'm going to be in the USA soon and plan to buy a load of textures and moulds while I'm there! Shades of Clay in Canada is another great site for textures.

    1. Thank you Pam..... good to know I'm not the only texture addict. Cool Tools has lots of fun designs and you're does Shades of Clay.... I have bunches of theirs too. I hope they don't have new ones too... I'm out of cash!

  2. lol I am imagining you and your mountains of texture sheets!

    Nice pieces, the texture is very interesting, love the colour.

  3. Love them, particularly the first piece.
