Back on the Block

Or back on the blog, if you must. Just popping into say I did finish a few pieces of unfinished business. This necklace includes a few of my faux bone beads.

And earrings to match-

And more-

...earrings too-There's more, but I'll stop here until another time. In the meantime, I'll keep plugging away at that pile!

Faux Inspiration

The theme for the upcoming Polymer Clay Artists Guild of Etsy April challenge is faux techniques. I needed a little inspiration to warm up to this challenge, so I looked for some examples to get me going. Of course, there is never a shortage of creative and skilled artists at Etsy. I found a few great examples of faux pieces and I created a treasury for all to see. Aren't they wonderful!

Well, I guess I'll have to get to work now. Enjoy these in the meantime.
