A NEW DIRECTION....kind of...

Well, it has been a while since last I posted but that's because I've been spending most of my time working on polymer clay jewelry design...and what direction to take it....

It has been slowly evolving to a point where I am liking it more and more...but it's not there yet...
however, I wanted to post this because it's the best I've come up with so far.....

I seem to be getting more and more sensative to color...trying to be not so blatant....although I've been there lol....this one though seems quieter and more subtle, so it's a keeper for now....

SOME NEW POLYMER JEWELRY

I'VE BEEN EXPERIMENTING WITH POLYMER CLAY LATELY AND HAVING A WONDERFUL TIME MAKING JEWELRY....THESE NEW PENDANTS ARE THE FIRST TIME I'VE TRIED MAKING CANES...THEY ARE MY ATTEMPTS AT DOING CRUSHED IKAT, WHICH I FOUND IN A DONNA KATO TUTORIAL...VERY EXCITING TO HAVE THIS PATTERN THING WORKING...

EACH ARE THREE INCHES SQUARISH...

OK, I'M OFF TO DO MORE...

Nothing much...

Not much progress with the purse handle kits...but I did get a good pattern tester, and she is going to do it in a deep red...I can't wait to see what that looks like!

Oh, plus I was granted wholesale status today on a fabulous yarn website....so I'm excited about that....it means I can buy the kit yarn at a price the will allow me to mark it up and make a profit, a welcome addition to the labor intensive handles and embellishments...

On the domestic front, I finished priming the porch...phew, that was a hot job...but it looks good....

Guess I'll go check out the tube and call it a night...

NEW PHOTOGRAPH....here's the real deal

Ok, I finally got this from the photographer...and I'm really happy with it...

ok...so now we have the photo....next is getting the pattern layout done with the photo included, which Yvonne will do hopefully early in August...and I've found at least one person who might be able to test the pattern so that's good too..

and for those who know about my daughter Adrienne and her war with her health insurance company...good news, she won her appeal!

Tomorrow we are going to a big get together with friends in South Jerssy...I usually hate to travel on a holiday(well, I'm not big on travel at all actually lol)but with the gas so expensive maybe there won't be a huge throng on the road..

see you again...I think I'm getting the hang of this blog thing...
