Joshua Tree Inspiration

One of my favorite plants in the Mojave Desert is the Joshua Tree. I was playing with polymer clay and was inspired to make a few pendants. This one has the “ghost” of a Joshua Tree design. Matches up well with this macrame necklace I knotted. I’m liking this new-to-me design for the necklace. Enjoy … Continue reading »

Wednesday, October 5, 2011 – BTW

Dug these up in the backyard yesterday afternoon. Teasing, really, I made them from polymer clay about two years ago and found them in one of my stash boxes. Decided to stain them yesterday. It’s one of the charms of being slightly disorganized, being able to delight yourself with long lost items. I’m not certain … Continue reading »

No worries, spare parts … Continue reading »

Macrame Bezel Polymer Clay Pendant

          I made this polymer clay pendant two years ago. It finally found a home in this micro macrame bezel pendant. Again, this macrame pendant is double sided with a few coiled wire accents. Happy knotting.
