RAMBLER


available on etsy
I had a very productive weekend, and the creative juices were overflowing. A while ago I bought some gorgeeeous polymer clay beads from Christine Damm, these beauties you see here in the front, faux jade she calls them. Her work is amazing, and you can visit her here at her blog, Stories They Tell. Today it came together for me, and when I stepped back and looked at it, it reminded me of a rambling walk, looking at earth, sky, water, air, growth, and the little flashes of sparkle I see in between on my journeys. It again reminded me of how my work in mixed media has opened up a bit more color freedom for me in jewelry.
I finished a few more pieces also, which I'll post as the week goes on....

I like the asymmetrical style and so many colors that go so well together. The clay beads have an interesting swirl design to them and beautiful color. Love the design!

Beautiful, Sharon! I like the way you are being influenced by mixed media. Let it loose! I would love to see your colour freedom with some of your wire work, which I adore!

I love the combination of the polymer clay beads and natural stones. It always amazes me to see what different jewelry designers do with polymer clay beads. I decided early on that my enjoyment comes from making the beads and I'll let those of you who are true jewelry artists put it all together.

What a feast of color and shapes! Thanks, Sharon, for posting this lovely work of yours! I was JUST this very weekend wondering what you were going to do with these beads. Now I will have to include a section on my blog for finished pieces using my little babies that have flown the nest!

To everyone today, thank you so much for your sweet comments and for making me feel so good! I sometimes worry that I may not do the bead artist justice...
Christine's beads make my job easy...Thank you all again!
