Working with Polymer Clay
I finally got one of the pieces that I've been working on for a long time done. I had the face for the piece done and got it on a filigree then put a coating of resin over it. I just didn't know what to do with it next. I found some leaf cookie cutters and decided to use them. I got the clay mixed and kind of bent the leaves before I cooked them. I really liked how they turned out. I put them on a copper necklace base and then added the chocolate ox leaves. The flower branches came next and I added orange crystals to them. It really came together when I wrapped the chain around the face and had it hang down over the forehead. I put a small gem in the center of the forehead as well. I really love the fall colors in this piece.
