Well and the warm ones... if its warm near you..just happens to be frosting early mornings here now, leaves have fallen, sticks are showing and we are in transition and heading towards the winter solstice!
I thought I would show a couple shots of some of the clay work I am jumping about..yes..nothing is finished but I work well while going with what inspires me.
Now none of these things are particularly original, people have been covering boxes and doing polymer clay jewelry for many years but for me its about bringing miniatures and polymer clay work into the light for some people who might not have seen these types of crafts or maybe to spark some of that creativity.
Remember people, when making your world a better place, start at home in your community! I complained for so many years about people not having my interests here where I lived, without thinking that maybe Janes got to get her ass on the dance floor first... and see who will come do the chicken dance!...er well you know what I mean ;)
Ok enough blabbing I got to get back to the work table!!
These boxes I got from Michaels for about a dollar each I am doing mixed media clay work adding some of the fairy garden leftovers as accent pieces and dabbing bits of scrap clay about.
I am doing a variety of styles on these cute, elaborate, theme and nature inspired.
I am working on this piece now I was thinking a path in a Forrest I have to make a bunch of little leaves to go about maybe some toadstools..
I did a few pieces of food jewelry, I will be doing some standard charms and things like this for people to browse through.
There is more... but for now that is good I think, I would really urge you folks who have stack of clay to create some of these types boxes for gifts, maybe a cupcake necklace for the little ones..just to play a bit! It is a nice change of skill and helps you to create even when your miniature thoughts stall.
Here is a gift I sent off for a friend, but this would make a wonderful Thanksgiving necklace I thought!
And this little guy I created was to help me keep crafting when I was so sick of crafting boxes..but after him I was inspired to keep working ;)
I hope all of your lives are well and inspired!
