ABS Challenge – Jan – Spring

The folks at Art Bead Scene Studio have been featuring awesome artwork every month, and challenging their readers to create jewelry inspired by the artwork -- the only rule being that at least one art bead is used. I've been a lurker so far, observing the artwork, and admiring the Perfect Pairing showcases where ABS… Continue reading ABS Challenge – Jan – Spring

More Mokume-Gane

Continuing with my trials and experiments, I thought of giving┬ámokume-gane another go, making sure I don't accidentally use Sculpey III like last time. ­čÖé I also thought I'd work in some foil with the clay.

Natasha Beads

I know Natasha beads involve slicing, and Sculpey III is probably not the best clay to use when it comes to slicing. But I had this Sculpey III cane of green, brown and white that I'd made when I started claying, and I haven't really been able to find a use for it, so I… Continue reading Natasha Beads
