As much as felting is my first passion, I love learning new things and have become quite obsessed with polymer clay.  The interest began with coming up with some sort of closure for the collars knitted with curls as I sat with Mom in the Kline Hospice House.  I could see that felted buttons would be lost and regular buttons would be blah - they needed something that made a statement and then my friend Pat Smith told me about a polymer clay technique named Mokume Gane.  When I get a new interest, it is full speed ahead and I read everything I could get my hands on, purchased books, viewed a myriad of videos on youtube and bought some as well.   Even with all that, next comes the hands on learning with quite a few disappointments as well as some quite thrilling results after a while.  I just loved that I could tailor the colors of the clay to complement the curls.

This is the first pendant that I made - I want to incorporate my felt with the clay and I was so pleased with the Pebeo paint I found.

  2. Margo, Wow! You really developed some awesome closures with Polymer Clay! I still recall our first conversation about Mokume Gane, and I am so proud of what you have done with the technique; because your results are just amazing!! I love seeing your special touch on everything you make.
