Happy What’s on Your Workdesk Wednesday once again, and Happy October, too. 🙂

2014 10 01 woyww  joann's samples

My desk today doesn’t show much more than the beginnings of several samples I’m working on for classes I’ll be teaching at Joann’s.

So, I thought I’d show you the promised pics of a couple finished projects.

First up are the Faux Sea Glass polymer clay beads that I burned a while back. Those black, blobby looking things are them.

patined beads

Here they are, painted with Swelligant metal paints, then patinated with the Tiffany green solution. After the patina was done, I lightly brushed on some of the metal paint, so the patinas are mostly in the recesses. Cool, eh?

And here’s the polymer clay necklace I was working on two weeks ago.

I like the way the Swarovski crystals and the pearls work with the polymer clay flowers.

And, surprise, surprise, it hangs just the way I wanted it to.

It doesn’t always work that way on the first try, you know. 😀

So, that’s what I’ve got for ya this week.  If you’d like to see what other creative folks are up to this week, join our What’s on Your Workdesk Wednesday blog link party over at Julia’s.

  1. Wow, Sandy! I’m so impressed with the way you redid the burned beads! How are you going to use them? Love the berries and leaves. The flower necklace is so sweet, too. Are you teaching polymer clay classes at Joann’s?

    1. Thanks, Robin. I have no idea how I’m going to use the beads, but I’m sure just the right thing will come along.

      I’m working on a polymer clay class for Joann’s right now, that’s one of the things on my desk. I hope to do more, as that’s an area I want to expand in.

  2. Beautiful Sandy, the pebbles look like real chunks of pretty rock! My hubby has been pebble polishing for the last couple of weeks, Petoskey Stones that we picked up from the shore in Petoskey when we were there in early September. Thanks for the card love earlier, and the socks are being worn today and are keeping my toes nice and toastie!

  3. So glad your polymer turned out right for you, nothing more annoying if it doesn’t. Is it for you or for sale?
    Great recycling of the bits you burned. One of the ladies at weekend got her C. Dumont pieces burnt but they were fabulous – great art for on a canvas. She was made up with them. Happiness from what could have been disaster.
    Enjoy claying around.
    Hugs, Neet 34 – and thanks for the visit

  4. Your jewelry is just gorgeous – I particularly love the patinated beads. Lovely stuff!! Have a great week, Chris # 16

  5. What a lovely necklace. How great that you made the beads too, it looks amazing!
    Thanks for your kind comments
