Happy Wednesday!  Today’s desk shows how very messy productive I’ve been lately.  🙂


I’ve been playing around with polymer clay.  At the moment I don’t have any specific focus, but have been just messing about with whatever comes to mind.

Lately, white tigers with blue eyes have been on my brain.  Am I the only 40-something woman who is enchanted by Dhiren from Tiger’s Curse?  I’ve heard it described as Indian Jones meets Twilight.  While I don’t intend to read Twilight, ever, I do kinda like Indiana Jones.  😉

Well, anyhow, here is a second attempt. (The 1st is hardly worth showing.)


He’s not quite what I want, but he is kinda cute.  I’m going more for noble and handsome, rather than cute, though.


Then there are all these shaped beads.  I’ve had the Tri-Bead Roller for several weeks now, but just pulled it out to play with.  Talk about a fun tool for making perfect polymer clay beads. It’s awesome.

This particular tool makes three shapes of beads: round, oval and bicone.  It comes with a little measuring tool so you always use the exact right amount of clay.

The pendant at the bottom was made using a push mold.  Many of the pieces have been dusted with either Perfect Pearls Heirloom GoldPerfect Pearls – Pewter or plain old Perfect Pearl powders.

I’m especially liking the larger silver bead (near the middle of the photo) covered with extruded snakes of clay.  Gotta play with that technique some more.

Whatever you’re doing today, I hope you have time for something fun and creative. Don’t forget to take a little time to virtually travel the desks of the world thanks to Julia over at What’s on Your Workdesk Wednesday.

Happy Creating!

  1. The first thing I noticed when your post popped up was the white tiger staring at you. I thought that might be kind of distracting while playing, but now I see he was being a model for you. My grandmother in law had a thing for tigers and had pictures of them everywhere, so many big cat eyes. I love your tiger head, but he is more cute than fierce. The eyes are awesome though. Great bead work and all with clay too. Judy # 140

    1. Yeah, I think it’s the fact that the eyes are so big that makes him more cute than noble or handsome. I picked those larger beads because I loved the color. I may have to resort to making my own eyes to get ’em just right.

      Thanks for stopping by!

  2. I’ve not heard of Tigers Curse but love the sound of it anyway, will have to check it out at the library! Waving hi from the hills of North Carolina 🙂

    1. Let me know what you think. I actually probably wouldn’t have liked it as much if I hadn’t listened to the audio book. Annika Boras’ reading really brings life to the characters, something the author didn’t do so well, imo.

  3. I love the big cats…. I haven’t played with any clay for a while…I should drag some out for the fun of it… I’ve only actually tried a few doll faces …I should try an animal… I did make one teeeeensy bear with paperclay once ..wonder where he is now?…hmmmm..


    1. I think it’s one of those things where you have to pay your dues. No one is an expert at first, but the more you do, the better the work gets.

  4. WOW your tiger head is amazing and I love those beads, such lovely colours 🙂

    Have a great WOYWW and a lovely week, Hugs, Karen xx #12

  5. I’ve never heard of Tiger’s Curse, but I sure like what you did with the polymer clay this week. It’s a fun thing to see people working with polyclay again. I’ve nearly forgotten how to work with it and how fun it is. Happy WOYWW from #4 this week.

  6. I love your tiger, it is realy good. I love playing with polymer clay as well but don’t have the bead making tools and have quite a few strange shapes when trying beads. Your beads look great.
    Have a wonderful week.

  7. Not sure whether my comment ‘took’ or not so I might be repeating myself! Love your clay work and you have such a creative workspace – thanks for sharing – Hazel #10 x

  8. Not heard of the tigers curse will have to check it out, love the clay tiger though, he does look noble but kinda cute too. Hugs, manda #123

  9. I had to hunt for the comments button, but found it eventually. Love your tiger. Dont understand why you dont want to read Twlight Series they are really good books.

    1. Eliza – Yeah, I guess I was just reacting to a lot of the snarky negative reviews of Twilight. I recently had two different people dare me to read the books (in the same week, even!) and now I’m totally hooked. I now own all four books, all four movies and am really looking forward to the last movie. lol

  10. No end to your creativity is there! clay is so not my thing..I love that you just free form and then ping! A tiger!! Amazing beads too, I’m very impressed with the tool that tells you how much to use, that’s genius.

  11. Fabby creative space and I looooove the Tiger!
