Last Friday in September

I want to start by apologizing for being so late getting my post up. I am never late with these posts but the time seemed to get away from me and last weekend was spent with a very uncomfortable, teething toddler :-(
Thanks to help from my In-Law's and my husband I bring you my pieces for The Artisan Clay Design Team...
First up is the bracelet I made using this awesome button, leather, and polymer clay beads. My first attempt at polymer clay so go easy on me :-)
Artisan Clay Button

Polymer Clay Beads

Finished Bracelet
I love how light and easy to wear this bracelet is. I can see it with a 3/4 sleeve chunky sweater, jeans and knee boots. Which is basically my wardrobe for fall.

Next is the necklace I had in mind when I first saw that button.

An etched copper bird I made is suspended from the button by 20 gauge wire. The necklace is made up of a whole bunch of glass beads in different shapes and sizes. I love glass beads, they are so versatile. This necklace has faceted rounds, bell flowers, leaves and teardrops. Yum!

Be sure to check out the rest of the teams button designs.

Have a great weekend!

OHGoodness Shannon! You did such a good job on your clay beads! I love the bracelet & I think it's great that you matched it up with an outfit. It makes me want to go get a new outfit just for that bracelet! I really like the necklace too...especially that it's not symmetrical & each side looks different! Great job!

Those are both fantastic! I REALLY like the way you used the button in the necklace. Cool beans!

Time for a teething toddler and some polymer clay adventures? You're the woman!!! Love the bracelet design and the visual of a cozy sweater on this cool October morning.

Carol Dean said...

Both pieces are quite enchanting! I love the browns and turquoise of your bracelet and the visual "lightness" of your necklace is delightful.

Your beads are just great, I really like how you added the texture to them and your bracelet..perfect! The necklace is awesome!!! I mean really what is not to love about it..the bird is just darling! As a designer Shannon you are growing by leaps and bounds adding all these great techniques to your wonderful designs.
