Week #10 of the challenge was created while teaching the Etching Alternative class at the New England Polymer Art Guild. The amount of imagination shown by the guild members was amazing.
Week #9 includes a broken heart pendant using an Etching Alternative veneer and a lupine cane created by Sandy Clement. The pendant is finished with brass strip and woven with brass wire.
Week #8 of the Polymer Clay Challenge includes a new abstract pendant using 2 different Etching Alternative veneers from the same copper sheet so the design extends from the dark green into the light green. The pendant is divided by a strip of brass and hammered brass wire circles are woven through the brass strip being the base for the pendant.
Week #7 of includes a star shaped pendant using an Etching Alternative veneer, brass strips & brass wire.
Week #6 includes a round pendant with an Etching Alternative veneer, brass strips and brass wire.
Week #5 of the Polymer Clay Challenge includes an oval pin made with an Etching Alternative veneer, brass strips and brass wire.
Week #4 of the 2017 Polymer Clay Challenge includes a stylized flower pendant using an Etching Alternative veneer with brass strips and brass wire. The pendant bail is a coil of brass wire. The back is finished with liquid colored clay.
Week #3 includes the earrings that go with the asymmetrical chunky necklace from last week. The earrings include some veneer from the Etching Alternative and a small piece of Mokume Gane surrounded by textured black clay. Hung from a black chain and sterling earring wires.
Week #2 includes a necklace made with part Etching Alternative veneer and part Mokume Gane pieces surrounded by textured black clay. A toggle clasp finishes the piece. Making this necklace was very difficult for me as I usually prefer symmetry.
