    Theyr’e all great. What a great art form this is.
    I really like the little fishies the best. How adorable are they? I think hte dark wavy ones look like Mother of Pearl at first glance,which I mean as a huge compliement. I just love it when clay looks like natural elements. That alone is an art,I think.
    Beautiful work. :)

    Well, everybody my ‘thunder’ again; I slept too late (11a.m.); I was up ’til 3a.m. reading “The Rope” by Nevada Barr.

    THANK YOU!!! You all continue to give me confidence to move on!
    I do (finally) have an etsy shop (JustADrop) which lists my jewelry and the poly-clay beads. I have a BUNCH more to list soon-ish….. I created and baked last weekend and I will gild/color/paint this weekend. So yes, they’ll be available soon-ish. SORRY to be so vague, but my 9th and 10th grade students do take up most of my time. Can’t wait til summer!!!!! :)

    Here are a few pics of what I have yet to do….. I’ve been “experimenting with tan or ecru or beige….. Angela, the blues are for you! :)
    The golden/bronze pieces are a “whim” but they might be really cool with the gilders paste. We’ll have to wait and see……

    Thank you Julie for the blues and I LOVE anything astrological! I also like the middle set, it looks so tribal and I can’t wait to wee what colors you apply to them! The first set is too cool to! :)

    SquirrelGirl aka Angela says:

    Not “astrological”, but “astronomical” and not “wee”, but “see”. Ha ha, I’m a goofball tonight. Sorry, I’m typing faster than my brain is working. ;)
