Here’s the third project I did for my book proposal on polymer clay animals. I’m happy with it for several reasons. First, it uses a different technique than my usual for the clay colors. And I’m using found objects – pieces of orphaned sterling earrings – in the piece. I also think the combination of the sterling metal, black and white clay, and rock crystal is a nice one.
When I first finished the rabbit I was all set to construct a necklace with my antique copper or gold stuff. But that’s what I always do and I wanted to try something different. I usually don’t wear silver but I know that a lot of people do and since I wanted the book proposal to have a wide appeal, I went with it. I’m glad I did. I like this little piece very much and wear it often.
