Happy Wednesday, all! Sorry I didn’t participate last week, but I’ve been spending way too much time watching the Olympics so there was nothing at all interesting on my desk.
(Click on any of the photos for a closer look.)
This week, however, I’ve been working on something I’ve wanted to try for a long time: polymer clay chocolate charms. Naturally, I first had to get samples for research, but for some strange reason my research materials were nearly gone by the time I got to working on the project. I wonder where they went? 😀
It’s rare that a project comes out looking as good as you pictured it in your head, but I’m quite please with these. (Just wish I could eat them!)
The chocolate covered cherry needs something shiny inside, but I seem to be out of gloss finish. Guess I’ll just have to go shopping. After that these will all be put together and then I’m gonna have the yummiest (looking) bracelet around. 🙂
Here’s a shot with a dime to give you some idea of the size. The largest is about 3/4-inch (2cm) square and the smallest is about 1/2-inch (1.5cm) square.
These were so much fun to make, I may do more and add them to my Etsy shop. But I’ll probably have to do more research first. ***grin***
If you’re wondering why I’ve posted a photo of my totally messy desk, you mustn’t be acquainted with the phenomenon that is What’s on Your Workdesk Wednesday. Check it out! It’s fun and you’ll find you’re getting to know folks from all over the world.
