Here’s my latest creation, it’s a Polymer Clay Mokume Gane technique Pendant with matching earrings.
Mokume Gane is a Japanese metalworking technique in which thin layers of metal are fused together and manipulated to create beautiful patterns that resemble the grain of wood. In fact, “mokume gane” means “wood-eye metal” in Japanese. Polymer clay artists mimic this process by laminating sheets of polymer clay together, distorting them, and slicing thin sheets from the stack to reveal the resultant patterns.
I’ve always loved Lime Green & Purple together, kinda weird combination, but that’s me. The greens are actually Premo pearl, so they are quite shimmery, it doesn’t really show in the photo. I’m writing this & listening to Jay Z’s new song Young Forever, I tried to get it to play on this page, but I’m still learning how to do this blogging thingy & I haven’t gotten that far into it yet:(

This is one of my pendants that was published in the book “Polymer Artists Showcase” The front of the pendant is a gradation of cinnamon/russet colors, with black lines & dots to complete the composition. The back is a Mica Shift pattern done in a pearlized gold color. The bail at the top is actually a steel bead that I inserted with a wire into the top of the pendant to hold it securely, I like using odd & unexpected things for bails, I am a great collector of odds & ends, that I just know someday I might use in one of my creations. Maybe that makes me a hoarder of sorts? Well, I guess if you looked inside my craft closet you would see I’m not much of an organizer:( but, I know exactly where things are in my hodgepodge, jumbled up craft closet. Just ask me for a purple flat-backed rhinestone, & with a little digging, well maybe a lot, I’m sure to find one!!

I was thrilled to have four of my Polymer Jewelry pieces published in Tejae’s latest book Polymer Artists Showcase. Below you will see a photo of Tejae and the explanation that accompanies her book:
Polymer Artists Showcase includes popular well known polymer artists as well as never before published artists. Polymer art photos were collected from contributing artists from all over the globe. This photo book is an eclectic mix of jewelry, sculpture and various polymer art. An inspiring resource. Full color photos include artists name, flickr name and website (if available). A great gift for any polymer enthusiast.
