I knew having read craft blogs for quite some time before taking the plunge myself that people in the craft community seemed to be really friendly and supportive. Well I have found out that is truly the case.
Thank you so much to the lovely people who have been in touch and commented on my blog. Some I was aware of, others not and it is lovely to hear from you all.
Thank you to Cara Jane, looking at the wonderful things she has made with polymer clay as in the picture below makes me realise I have a long long way to go.
Made by Cara Jane
Her pieces are marvellous. The trouble is, I kind of expect that I should be able to do things straight away - and I cann't. I am realising this is going to be a long process of practice and trying to achieve better results.
Like Cara Jane I too had a top I wanted to make some jewellery to go with. Bringing some clay home from my workshop with Karol, (someone else who is a master of Polymer clay jewellery ). I tried to make a flower cane in order to make a bracelet.
Ooops not quite as easy as I thought. I don't know what quite happened with the flowers so I mixed them with some bullseye canes which went a bit squishy as well.
However I was quite pleased with the overall result, it looks okay from a distance and I have worn it.
Well I intend to enjoy, what I can see turning into a polymer clay addiction, and already have enjoyed meeting some lovely new people.
Thanks all. Lorraine xx
