New Pendants and what's on your worktable?

Hi, I said in my last post that I would show some of the new pendants that I have been working on, so here they are. I used quite a few different techniques on these babies. I used regular polymer clay, liquid polymer clay, I used shapes that I punched out from sheets of clay, I even silkscreened on the clay. But I'm pleased with the way that they came out. Now I have to figure out how I'm going to use them. String them on some cord with some glass beads? I'm not sure yet. But when I get them done, I will post pics of the final result. So what's on your worktable? Anything new and exciting? Hope so. Talk soon & thanks for checking in!

It's been awhile...

Well hey there! It's been awhile hasn't it? It's been almost a month since I last posted. It's just so hard to get motivated with this blog thing, you know? So the best I can do is to promise that my posts will be sporadic at best! First of all, you don't even know if anyone out there is reading your blog, then you think, well why would they? I mean why would anyone care to read about what I think? So then I think, well I shouldn't really be writing for anyone else anyway. I should write because I want to, and just do it for myself. I don't know, then sometime's I just get so darn busy, that I quite simply don't have the time. So - there it is - for whatever it's worth! So I finally went and got my business license -- yeah!! Which means that I've got to get serious now, and start running this thing as if it's a legitimate business. No more half-assing it! Time to put my nose to the old grindstone! And I'm really ready! I've been sort of floating in this limbo state for far too long. Guess you could say that I took a good hard look in the mirror, and I wasn't very thrilled at what was looking back. So I took some time out for some much needed self evaluation, and decided to make some changes in my life. I suppose that this has all come about because it's my birthday this weekend. I'll be 49 years old!!! Yeah I said it! Almost 1/2 a century old!! Whew - getting old sucks! Don't let anyone tell you differently. Your body just pretty much quits cooperating with you and starts to fail you at the strangest times and in the strangest ways. You get new pain in new places and for no apparent reason. It's weird. The up side to it is, that you start to feel much wiser in the ways of life. By now, I'm also very comfortable with who I am, and overall, I generally like myself and who I have turned out to be. I just need to remember to check in with myself from time to time, and always remember to keep up with the preventative measures in all respects. Aging, health, etc. Well anyway, I believe I'm babbling now, (another sign of aging) so I will leave you now, but not before I show you a few pictures of some new bracelets that I have been working on. Both the beads and the bracelet design are new for me. Overall I'm very happy with them. And I have a ton of other ideas rolling around in my head, that I just need to find the time to try. My other bracelets were okay, but generally I must admit, they were very boring. But I needed that time to develop my skills in bead making. Now that I have, I think my beading skills were ready for something new. So the pictures in this post are of the new bracelets. I've also got some new pendants that I wanted to show you, but I'll save those for next time. Enjoy your weekend, I know I will! Till next time America -- lol. c-ya!
