Have been really busy with work and family in the last few weeks, and didn't have time to do much beading, although I'm still actively designing in my mind. Anyhow, thought I would show you, for a change, some of my polymer clay beads. A little while ago, on the Clay Play section of the Australian Beading Forum, we had a challenge on faux techniques. I decided to try my hands on faux lampwork beads using polymer clay and various other materials. It took quite a bit of experimentation, and here are a few that I'm quite happy with. Whilst the little owl is definitely my favorite (in case you don't know, I LOVE owls), I think the frog is rather cute too. Thanks for looking and hope you like.
Making jewelry is my passion. I work in the health profession during the day, and spend most of my free time designing and making jewelry. I do beading, wirework, metal clay, polymer clay, enameling, and a little lampwork and traditional silversmithing. I'm also a member of a lapidary club where I learnt to cab stones and teach classes. I've written multiple projects for Australian beading magazines, and many of my pieces have been published in magazines in both Australia and overseas. I have won multiple awards and competitions, and I'm a member of the Australian Beading Forum. That's me in a nutshell!
