my wonderful friend Az was visiting from california this week, she also has a mild case of polymeritis (okay, okay, it’s not a mild case at all!). i made her an adorable sushi bracelet, which she loved.

there will be no pictures of it here due to me forgetting to take a damn picture of it, ha! but i have taken pictures of the leftover beads.

and i think i shall be making a sushi bracelet of my own here pretty soon. i promise to take a picture of it!

in other news, i’ve been playing around with the canes i’ve made, attempting to make a few beads. here’s some cupcakes!

i’m thinking i will need to “finish” these ones, since there’s visible cat hair on them that refuses to disappear, LOL! some sanding and buffing…i need to buy some varnish…


om nom nom

honestly, i’ve had this idea for about six months now and it was the real reason for getting back into claying (well, other than the unemployment lol). i wanted to see how it would come out.

took me a couple days just brain storming and drawing different items. and about three afternoons to put it all together, at that point it looked like this:

it’s hard to tell, but it’s about 2 1/2 to 3 inches wide and an inch or so thick.

here’s the finished product after reducing the hell out of it:

the “cake” part didn’t want to reduce as readily as the “frosting” part, BUT it’s still came out pretty adorable.

i’ve got about four variations in my head and sketchbook on this theme…can’t wait to try them!
