My latest on Etsy

I'm still on a major metal clay kick. It's so nice to feel creatively inspired when "it" seemed to have vanished after my father passed away. It really took a long time for me to start feeling like working on anything. Anyway, on a positive note. I just listed these on Etsy, and I'm particularly fond of the Captured Blossom pendant.
I'm teaching a metal clay class at beadFX tomorrow, It'll be fun to spend the day with some metal clay newbies. I love watching what they come up with, especially when they have no preconceived notions of what is technically "easy" or "difficult".

New Year, new inspiration

I'm a little late posting my "happy new year" post! - We all had a major bug over the holidays that kept us in hibernation of sorts. The kids are starting to get better, and now I'm worse. While sick, I was able to get some play time in at home. I recently received Hadar Jacobsens texture book and video on metal clay. I love her collage technique, and I've made a couple pieces that I'm completely in love with.

For any of you metal clay afficionados out there, I highly recommend her book.

These were just recently listed on Etsy:
