Think Pink Swap

Sunday, September 27, 2009
These are the pink charms I made for the Think Pink charm swap on Amber Dawn's blog awhile back.

They are made of polymer clay then painted with acrylic paints. I used head pins to attach them to jump rings and added beads and flower sequins. These sequins were a gift from a blogger I met at the first ArtFiberFest, Diane Moore, as well as several packages of vintage glass buttons and purple rose beads. Every time I use these goodies in my projects I think of her and the fun we had. :)

And then because packaging is so important, I wrapped them in pink tissue and put them in little manila envelopes then tied them up with red and pink baker's twine that had a polymer cane bead slipped on it and a tag.

Well done Francie, the little faces are so cute and happy.
I love the way you finished everything and sent them, nice!

Thanks, Marie. :) I ended up painting them because my caning skills were awful. LOL

At times I am so envious of those of you who create amazing works of art with clay. It just blows my mind. :)
