Silver and polymer blended blocks


I've been meaning to try my Makins extruder with core adaptors for a while and finally did. Makes great tube beads (on the right) to which I added texture and a loop from which to hang some pretty thing. I also felt like playing around with more ideas for the the workshops I'm teaching at the Grafton Artfest in April next year. The leaf and silver earrings are finished and I'm very happy with those. We're also going to be making coloured blended plugs and adding silver overlays for pendants and earrings. I've yet to make those but this looked like such a colourful shot, I had to snap and share! Click on the pic for zoom if you're having trouble seeing the detail.

Thanks girls.
Nope Deb, no cream for that one! Mind you, I let the pmc itch burn for a few years before I finally succumbed so I totally understand.
