Mixed Media Necklace

I made this necklace during TV night a couple of weeks ago. The central pendant is one that I made awhile back with polymer clay, and there are two matching polymer clay beads too--I love the copper/ patina look. I added copper wire squiggles with an assortment of beads, and linked them all together. It was fun to make, and I was happy to be able to use some of my polymer clay beads in a finished piece.

Spring is in the Air!

Catching up on some posts here. Fletcher is 5 weeks old now--where has the time gone? He is doing great--loves to eat--and is growing nicely. My 7 year old dd loves loves loves him, and my 4 year old son is pretty enchanted with him, though he won't admit it!--and will tell you that he is allergic to babies! But he is a pretty proud big bro.

I am anxious to get back into some art making. Harder to do these days, but I am trying to fit small bits in here and there. I just get cranky when I don't have time to be creative, so it is an important part of my life that I need to make time for.

Anyway, here are a couple of swaps that I did in April, right before I had the baby, but didn't have time to post yet. The charms were for a Springtime Charm swap on Oh So Charming, and the papers were for a Springtime paper swap on Collage UnLeashed. The papers were painted and stamped, and the charms were made with shrink plasic, and the other set with polymer clay.
