Relic rings

Playing with my polymer clay and Knead-a-mold again!  Finished them off with fabulous metal paints and patinas.  Iron, Copper and Bronze are my 3 favorites to work with. I love how these are organic, and continue to change from day to day as the patina blooms and develops.  Made tons of these and friends gobbled them up as soon as I made them, so I had to make more to donate at the CREATE Orange County Mixed Media Retreat this coming week!  If you are in the Irvine area, come play with me in my workshops!

Eye Candy

I have been so busy lately, pulled in so many directions, and buried alive in so many projects that I'm trying to give my all to, and I've been absent and neglectful of fun art here in bloglandia!  So to make up for it, I'm posting some of the projects I finished just recently.
Hope you enjoy!  I call these little darlings my Vivacious Vials.
