I was so delighted to have been able to attend a polymer clay technique class by Christine Damm of The Stories They Tell at Art On The Farm in Vermont this early summer.
With polymer clay you can achieve quite a bit of length without adding too much weight to your designs.
The poly clay parts are actually headpins I formed and with the coloring and veneer technique I learned I was ready to go big using the pieces as a canvas for texture and color.
I simply paired them with a set of lampwork beads that I had on hand that I had made.
I didn't sell the beads as a pair because the the dimensions weren't the same but I'm not afraid to use them together myself!
These babies are over 3 and a half inches long (9 cm)
I'm looking forward to making more of these headpins so that if I get enough of a good stash of them i'll be willing to part with some to sell.
Imagine the possibilities!
