As always I am WAY behind everyone else in the polymer clay world, and have only recently discovered Cynthia Tinapple’s Polymer Clay Daily website. However I am making up for lost time by attempting to read through all of the archived articles on the site. I love it! In the space of a few weeks my work has already started to evolve.

I was particularly blown away by the entry for 20 April 2011, which featured the work of Cathy ‘dumauvobleu. I think her jewellery is amazing.

Here is an example of what some of my pendant-designs used to look like…:

Pink Flower & Swirl pendants

…but since seeing Cathy’s work I have been experimenting with texture and with using repeating patterns instead of randomly layering of cane-slices:

I think my work is really improving. Thank you Cynthia and Cathy!
