A Foray into Polymer Clay

As I mentioned in a previous post, I am taking a little hiatus from enameling and metalsmithing. In the meantime, I have been playing around with polymer clay. I have dabbled in polymer clay in the past, but this is the first time I have really concentrated on it, and I am just finally starting to put together some pieces that I like. I mixed my polymer clay beads with some metalwork and wirework elements, and a few Czech glass beads in the blue and green necklace. Of course I have always loved beads so the best thing about working in polymer clay is the opportunity to make my own beads! These are a few of the pieces I have made so far. I will probably be putting some up in the etsy shop soon.

Necklaces on Sale and Other News

In honor of my least favorite time of year (only two months of winter to go!) I am having a little sale in my Copperheart Designs online shop. All brass and copper necklaces with colored finishes are on sale at 25% off! I have lots of colors, styles and lengths to choose from. Why not buy yourself (or your valentine!) something pretty!

In other news, I am taking a hiatus from enameling, etching, and soldering as well as showing at craft fairs while I work on (ahem) a very special "project." I will still be busy doing some cold work and dabbling in polymer clay, and I will still be managing my shops and processing orders. Everything in my shops is made and ready to ship, so shop away!
