‘Versa-tile’ cane earrings

‘Versa-tile’ cane earrings

I am playing with my ‘versa-tile‘ cane as I prepare to teach it in a workshop at the Euro Clay Carnival in Rome from the 2-4th February 2019. Here are my latest statement earrings. I split the oval to add some movement. There is an earring stud in the top part and it’s connected with some oxidised silver jump rings so the bottom part dangles. They are large – 6cm long – but light and comfortable to wear. I’ve...

The heart motif was central and I considered making the middle of the heart the line of symmetry in my cane...

Polymer Patchwork, a bit of science and a problem solved

Polymer Patchwork, a bit of science and a problem solved

First of all, I’d like to wish you a happy new year and I hope 2018 is a peaceful year full of health, happiness and creative fun for you all! When I came to tidy up my workbench I found some little leftover scraps from some scrap clay Mokume Gane, there were too small to do much with so I decided to do some polymer patchwork. Nice bit of polymer clay recycling 🙂 I was pretty pleased how they turned out so I cured them and added a back...
