Here as promised on Facebook, are some photos of my latest project. I'm really pleased with it. I've made a necklace and earring set for the winter exhibition at Arteria's Gallery 23 in Lancaster. I'm working hard to make a decent amount of jewellery to leave with them before I go away at the end of September. The exhibition runs from 26th October until 8th January. I'll be back early November and hopefully I'll have made some more jewellery while I'm away in case they want any more.
I've rolled out a sheet of black clay and covered it with slices from assorted canes. I've used a variation on a technique I found on a great website, How to make beads from polymer clay .
I used her technique for some pillow beads I made, and some beads Amanda from Chicita Gimme That Thing has used for some of her lovely wire wrapped rings.
I'm sorry the photo of the necklace isn't too good. I was lazy and just took one photo since I'm not listing them on Folksy. I will have to take a better photo of it, the light tent I ordered has just arrived so I'll try that out later.
