Metal Clay has become my new best friend. It was October and I was trying to figure out what to get my Mom for her birthday when I spotted the magazine Handmade Jewelry. In a heart beat I said, “I’ll make her something”. I started with a beaded necklace with some stamping on a charm. To my surprise, she loved it and so did my sister, as well as everyone who saw her wear it that night. I then made my sister a necklace. Long story short, all the women in my family got one for Christmas. That’s when I decided to buy myself some metal clay because why not make my own charms? I’m hooked.
Here is some of my first metal clay and polymer pieces. (unfinished)
I hope to make some more pieces very soon. Right now I’m playing with some ideas and doing some sketching. There are so many ideas running through my head it’s difficult to hold them long enough to get them down on paper. I guess that’s a good thing.
