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.

Recently inspired by the full moon on the 25th. Finally completed this cuff that I started last August for the 6th Bead Soup Blog Hop.

The cabs on it were too large to bend at the proper angles. So, as most designers know, flexibility is the key to creativity. Hence, with a few … Continue reading »
