Weekend Catch Up with Polymer Clay


Well I had planned to do a post on Faux Jade with polymer clay, but life always has other plans, well actually it was my hubby as he arranged a much needed night out the good old fashioned way of a meal and a film, which was wonderful.  He had bought tickets to see Les Miserable but the geek in me persuaded him that we should see the Hobbit as it won't be showing much longer, very enjoyable and 3D is highly recommended and enchanced by a good half bottle of wine.

Still I do have some polymer clay makes that I had have been creating over the last week, following my Polymer Clay Millefiori Rose Canes.

Here are some pendants created from my red rose cane and I've incorporated a Zipper Cane as an edging.  The largest will be a brooch, but I'm still undecided on what I will do with the other pieces.

This is a collection of beads I've created with the burgundy rose cane, I have plans for these to be teamed with some deep red Swarovski crystals I have in my bead box to create a bracelet.








I've also been working some colour mixing for the new Pantone Spring/Summer 2013 colour predictions, if you haven't seen the colours yet here they are.

Below are my colour samples, not a bad match I think although you may notice Greyed Jade is missing, I must of got distracted.

So what do you think of the colour predictions?  Emerald has been named as Pantones colour of the year for 2013, so expect to see a lot of it.  I don't have a lot of green in my wardrobe but I might just find a way to incorporate it into my accessories.  Do you love Emerald?
