Shades of Green Polymer Ring




I showed you this ring a few weeks ago after I broke the pearl that was supposed to go into the large setting. I was bummed at the time and couldn't figure out what to make to fit the odd shape. I found that it is much harder to make something to fit into a setting than to make a setting to fit around a pre-made object! I tried cutting a piece of wood to fit in, and that didn't work (I hope to incorporate some wood into my designs soon). I have made some pieces with polymer clay, but only my textured pieces where I push the clay through holes in metal. So last night I played around with some polymer. I have been frustrated by this medium in the past, but am really excited by what I came up with. I also made these pieces and hope to incorporate them into some jewelry soon. I love the texture that the lines of clay create, and of course I love playing around with color, so I am really enjoying these.

I really like how you have the different colors and they are seperate. They also create a nice texture.

Cool idea. Of course, I'm not surprised you'd find something new.
