Prior to leaving for Bead and Button I needed to get some new work completed. I put my nose to the proverbial grind stone and got it done. I am pretty happy with the results. And while I am still working with the colorful Kandinsky-inspired style I am always trying to improve. Pendents and pins are fun, giving me a good sized area to play with.
My earrings are very popular, but not for everyone. They are a bit large and I have tried to reducing the size a bit . . . . . still working on that. But they provide a wonderful pop of color, I love these.
But the rings and bangles are my favorite right now. I am particularly fond and proud of the way I have captured the color on the bangles.
I have done some experimenting with this style. Here, I am playing with white and black backgrounds. Does it work as well? Or is it just different.
I am also trying to sign all of my work. I started when I received a wax seal stamp of my squirrel logo as a Christmas present from my sister-in-law. It worked well but was too big for some of my pieces.
So I got a smaller stamp made from www.metalclays.com. It is designed to be used with metal clay, but it works great with polymer clay too. It is small, detailed and was a great price!
It is small enough to be used either on the back of a piece or even ‘hidden’ in the pattern on the front of a piece. What do you think? Too much?
