As the title reflects, I feel I have been Chasing Rainbows to no avail. I needed someplace or thing to make me feel more grounded and accountable. Somewhere I can record my plans and efforts as I work towards meeting goals of increasing my Polymer Clay knowledge, skills, and abilities while working towards a healthier me, in mind, body, and soul. A place that reminds me that everything has the possibility to improve with effort (I might even catch part of one of those Rainbows, someday).

On a Roll

Posted by Sue C | Posted on Sunday, January 03, 2010 | Posted in

Wow, I'm impressed, with myself, I've actually done two posts in a row.  We started our day at 4 am in -4*F weather, with a trip to O'Hare Airport to drop off the last of our adult Selkirk Rex cats for Shipment to Sunny Southern California.  Except for the last two litters of kittens, we are now completely out of the Cat showing and breeding hobby.  Now I can get busy with my Polymer Clay addiction, again.
                                    What do I have on my table now?

I'm making beads and focal pieces from my Christmas PC Leftovers.

Last year I made this necklace which was a take-off from a Julie Picarello "Lizard Tail" technique that I took a step further to make the rolled beads to go with it.

At a much later date I realized they are similar to Oven Fried Beads "Stacker Beads", although again, I have a slightly different twist to them, also.

These items are fun and relaxing to make and a great use for PC Leftovers when I get tired of making Swirly Beads.   So, my time for blogging is at an end for today, and I've finished my "to do list" for today, also, so off to have some more fun.  Sue C

very unique !

Thank you.

I like the twisty "beads" = very pretty.

I do too, they are a lot of fun to make, other than color, you don't know what they will look like until the final cut.

Your current table reminds me of your table at a certain Jana workshop that we took together! How fun! We really have to get together again - somehow, someday. I love your blog! You are doing great!

Thanks, Jackie. I'd enjoy claying with you again. Next time I'm even close to you is for Clay Carnival in Las Vegas, next November. Sure wish Mr.C was already retired, then we'd be traveling all over the country. For now, vacation time is limited, though. Hugs
