Petals and Pods

Each time a flower cane is made, there is atleast a small stub of the petal that remains. This is one very delightful way to use those leftover petal canes. All these were made using either petal cane ends or remaining bits after making the flower cane. Isn't it wonderful to put each and every bit of clay to good use!

Matching necklace and earrings for the bracelets

I would never wear a bracelet with earrings or a necklace that is not matching. So, it was time to make the pink flowers and peach and bue earrings an necklace. Here is what I came up with.
The peach roses and butterflies are a lot colorful than the pink ones, and decided to keep this set simple, and here it is.

Pink roses and flowers were rolled, cut into heart shaped focal beads for the pendant and earring . Used a flower design toggle clasp and a swan bail with white stones studded on it. This set turned out a lot more dramatic than expected.

Cuff bracelets

These cuff bracelets were made using metal bases that I picked from a flea market. The surface is rounded and is very handy for covering with clay as there is no need to use an adhesive to fix the clay to the base. Once the clay is baked on the base, it wouldn't come out unless forced. This is my first attempt at cuff bracelets and I can't wait to go and grab some more of these bases . Watch out for more of these soon!
