An Accidental Beauty
Sometimes when I mix my polymer clay colors, a very pretty accident happens as I run the clay through my pasta machine. While working on some of my wishboxes, I found myself with a bunch of leftover clay. I gathered it up and just randomly stuck it together. I decided to blend it and ran it through my pasta machine a few times and came up with a very unique, warm and bronzed looking color combination. I trimmed some rough edges and voila' a beauty appeared! I added a simple coiled bail made from gold wire and strung the pendant using some beads that I had laying around. I then made some simple beaded wire earrings that I formed from the same gold wire as the bail...here is the end product. It will be available in my Etsy store this weekend. You can go there by clicking on any of my jewelry pictures or my Etsy link tab.
