My muse is on vacation. I want to clay but I can't come up with an original idea. Every time I go back to clay I end up cleaning drawers and rearranging.... which most likely means I won't be able to find anything... I am my very own Easter bunny.... I put things away, can't remember where I put them... so I just pretend I'm hunting Easter eggs... may as well enjoy this "second childhood" ....right?
Okay, in order to clay I decided to try another tutorial that I have stored on my Pinterest "tutes" board. This time it is one by Dora Arsenault. She has lots of good cane tutorials on her blog, this one she named "Behold" cane
After spending 10 minutes trying to decide on colors... I told you my muse was MIA.. I finally said "to hell with it" and used the same colors as Dora.
Here is the canes I made.... click on the link above for the tute.
I like the "9 square"... here's a close-up. If you want a closer look just click on the photos.
I used it to make beads.

That's it for the clay but I did get out my wire and complete a couple more necklaces.
I like this pendant, it went together really well and looks good on. I used amber wire to fit the pieces together and then strung it on a green waxed cotton cord.
I like how this one turned out too. I added wire and beads to the center of the pendant then made matching links to finish the necklace.

That's it... tine for nap.... or maybe a snack.... probably both.
Thanks for stopping by.
