Our mission ... which I willingly chose to accept .. was to create a design (not limited to jewelry) using polymer clay and incorporating at least two of the colors from the palette below:
I started by mixing several clays to get a copper red color and pressed it into a pendant bezel. I then added some texture to it with a makeshift stamp.
As simple as the creation of this pendant was, I love the way it turned out. It even somewhat looks and feels like leather (okay, okay ... simulated leather =).
I attached some split rings to the pendant and wire wrapped some glass leaf beads that had the copper red and downing stone colors running through them.
I'm quite new to making my own polymer clay pieces, but I like my simple pendant and I'm definitely going to follow through on this design. Until then, please visit our PCCC host Jeannie's blog, as well as the Polymer Clay Collective group on Facebook to see who else was up for this challenge!
