Sunny Okanagan


Beautiful snowy day on the golf course. The winery on the hill is in a cloud and the bells that chime the hour are crystal clear in the cold air. It is sparkly pretty but the little black dog with the delicate feet of a porcelain doll says burrrr....this sucks. I say soldier on buttercup, Alberta awaits thee in 2 weeks.

16 Samples of polmer clay bracelets

These are the samples of the 16 polymerclay/glass/metal bracelets made during this epic session. Many thanks to my Sweatshop bodies, Myrle, Marie, Poppe and Dave who through generous lending of time, muscle and tools did the tedious stuff. New year plan is to make bangle lost wax style bracelets etc.

A few more

These are the latest samples. What do you think?

Samples of finished bracelets

These are a few samples of the bracelets I have been toiling over. They are polymer clay, mixed with bead and metal elements. The question to you is.......Will they sell to anyone other than family and people I owe?

Tough to share

He was so sweet about passing on the Grand Slam of Dremel attachments. It wasn't easy each of the 3000 bits and pieces had a story and now they are all MINE!

Clip it up the Madonnart way

Thanks Milli for visiting and leaving a comment. This is a pic of the jewlery attached to the gismo. I have made another using a lampshade form, the light is a bonus.

Polymer Plates

The plates are finished. Next week will be spent sanding, varnishing and assembling. Excellent week of mixing clay, using 20 packs of polymer, dozen rubber gloves, 4 exacto blades and 1 box of band aides.

Christmas card 2008, painted, copied, finished!

I call it Inuit Winter. It is the 2008 Christmas card effort and guess what? I even like it. It is a watercolor on the heaviest paper I could find. I scratched out all the white snowey, furry effect. In all quite a relaxing, somewhat purging process.

Mixing polymer color

Wait for it people.....That was not the color of the final bracelets. Now I blend, add gold or silver leaf, and sometimes irridescent powders, until it looks like this.

Polymer Bracelets

The start is always the hardest.Conditioning, rolling, mixing the clay, time consuming, messy and tiring. Always better to bring in help and when they get hungry or tired and say they "HAVE TO GO", bring in others, even if they are 94 and have a broken arm. They can turn the pasta machine I say.The clay is now ready for the fun part...designing. This I can do's the fun part...go home people and thanks.
