My Etsy shop has been doing very well since the beginning of July which has prompted me to get my clay out and make a couple of new pieces for the summer.
One of my favourite peices I made last year was my urchin themed necklaces, but this time I've decided to go a little bolder with the colour scheme.

So here's my seashell cane using an assortment of the colours mixed and combined a create a cane that will provide the main theme for my beads.

Unfortunately I didn't quite mix up enough of the colours for the palette and so I will only be able to create a few pieces, but here's a selection of the beads made with plans to create a chunky urchin necklace, beaded thong necklace and bracelet. As mentioned due the enjoying the weather the necklaces have yet to be put together.

As I also recently started a collection of polymer clay rings and studs I decided to create some seashell themes for a summer collection.

I predict not much claying this week will be done, its quite diffucult claying in this heat as the clay can become quite soft and sticky if over worked, so I guess I'll have a little more time to tan my pasty legs.
