Thanks Kerry Bogert!

Spent last Saturday evening at ArtBLISS in a workshop with Kerry Bogert - I have her book: Totally Twisted which, if you don't own a copy RUN to the bookstore to get one! Great ideas!

This bracelet is something I made after the workshop - I wanted to try making a hook clasp we learned before I completely forgot how to do it! This hook is made with 18 gauge colored copper wire from Parawire (love them!) - I'm pretty happy with the way it turned out.

Thanks Kerry!

Try Something New

My first attempt at making my own polymer clay beads. Polymer clay is pretty amazing stuff. It can be shaped into, over, around pretty much anything. It seems to be indestructible once its hardened. It never hardens on its own, you don't need any special or expensive tools to work with it, comes in an amazing array of colors and it's cheap - about $2.25 for a 2 oz. block.  There are literally thousands of how-to videos on the internet. Get some - have fun!
