I got so much done this past weekend! I completed all my custom orders, made several more Christmas ornaments, AND got all my necklaces packed and ready to ship to Baltimore for the Baltimore Clayworks show, Adornment Adored!
If any of you are in the Baltimore area between October 3 and November 6, please stop by the clayworks and take a look at all the gorgeous polymer clay items in the exhibit. I am just thrilled to be included in the same show as several of my fellow PCAGOE members, not to mention Louise Fischer Cozzi and Elise Winters!
The Polymer Clay Artists Guild of Etsy is well represented in the exhibit. The PCAGOE members who will be exhibiting are:
Angela Hickey of PolymerClayCreations
Wandie Ortiz of BijouxHibou
Kira Slye of StudioBijoux
Jill Kollmann of Jkollmann
Eugena Topina of Eugena777
Jan Geisen of JanGiesen
Lynda Moseley of SCDiva
As for the polymer clay work I did this weekend, I was especially pleased with this little verdigris gingko leaf pendant made for my friend Sue at SueBeads. This blend of copper clay is my absolute favorite to work with. It is a gorgeous, rich, deep antique copper color that sands and buffs beautifully. I love adding a stamp and verdigris to it. The turquoise in the verdigris "grout" goes perfectly with the copper color. Sue makes the most gorgeous glass beads and I can't wait to see what she pairs with this pendant!
I made this Turquoise Tree of Life Pendant for my friend Lynn, one of the Lima Bead regulars. I have done this design in antiqued copper clay, but I really, really love the Turquoise with the chocolate brown accent. The clay has copper embossing powder in it and just a touch of pearl metallic clay for a teeny bit of shimmer. I can't wait to see what Lynn does with it!
I'll post more of the Christmas ornaments later. They are already very popular, so I'm off to find more designs!
