New Stuff



I've started a new piece for a necklace, although I don't know if necklace is the right word for a piece this large (6x4.5 inches)...it's another of my p/c (polymer clay) faces, some vintage sew-ons with red glass, some small twisted bugles and sequins, so far.

Also have the fabric background and a couple of items selected for my November bjp. Since november is my birth month and I'm a water sign, I picked this blue/grey/green cotton batik that reminds me of patterns in the water as the background. I also picked the p/c double moon faces that I made from a mold made from a double moon bone cabachon and 3 small blue topaz marquis shaped sew-ons, since topaz is my birthstone. I have never liked the gold colored topaz but love the light blue topaz, so that's what I use. Since I'll be 58 this year, I'll have a 5 and an 8 in there somewhere, but haven't decided which way to go with the numbers yet.

Both of these are great, Bobbi. As always, I love your 'face' pieces -- you do such gorgeous beading on these. Your BJP piece will be super -- love the colors -- and the blue topaz (to me) is much more lovely than the gold topaz --

That double-face cab is one of my favorite to see used -- I just know this page will be special indeed.

And I especially like the large face cab you are making that necklace out of -- this will be great fun to watch develop!

thanks, jackie and kathy...I'm working on an original design for a bracelet. Haven't done that in a very long time, and I'll be showing it here first.
