This pendant is made from polymer clay, with some flower cane slices and crystals added. The challenge, every time, is to make the thing your working on, wearable. Practical. That's where the engineering skills come in. How do I attach this pendant to a necklace? How and where do I position the bail? It's got to look good and also be strong.
I am convinced after making jewelry full-time for about a year that BOTH sides of my brain are optimally used. Idea, design, the making of the thing, assembly, finishing, photographing, successfully wearing and/or selling it. This is the process with every single piece - and I am loving it.
