Summer Season

I've done two craft shows recently. One at York Township for Relay for Life and one at the Medina Fairgrounds for the Antique Tractor Show. I wanted something new for these shows so I covered some pens with polymer clay and made some bracelet helpers and covered them with polymer clay. The bracelet helpers are a tool that acts as a third hand when putting on a bracelet with a clasp that is hard to put on. I had fun trying different styles and techniques of polymer clay to cover the pens and the bracelet helpers.

I've entered the Polymer Clay Artists Guild of Etsy's monthly challenge the last two months. The last month was vessels and I put a bowl I had made in it. This month is using the extruder with polymer clay. I put a pendant I made that the extruder made little flower canes. I put slices from the canes on a sheet of black clay.
