Hummingbird charm

This pendant was made with one of my big translucent beads, assorted glass beads and a hummingbird charm made from a little mold I got at Sandy Camp. The big beads are such fun to make, using gold or silver leaf and inks. The pendant was created for a friend who has so many hummingbirds in her yard, it is fun to watch them all fly around. I miss feeding the little ninjas here in San Diego. They fly around Spanish Village, feeding on all the lush flowers we are blessed to have there.

Copper and Polymer Bracelet

Other then cuffs, I haven't made a bracelet for a long time. Here is my latest effort. I used a polymer clay spiral cane and rolled it to the size of the bezel. That was easy. Getting the clay slices to fit snug inside each bezel took a bit more time. It looks OK, but it doesn't wow me. Sometimes that is how it goes.
