Pansy Pendant

Here's another little project I did with polymer clay a few years ago. If I recall correctly, this was similar to a project that Donna Kato demonstrated on a Carol Duvall show. It's a little unusual for me, as I hardly ever follow someone else's patterns (I'm too impatient), but I really liked the Japanese feel to this piece. Hmm, I just looked for this on the HGTV website, and I couldn't find the project. There's a similar one on Donna Kato's website, though, if you're interested. Her instructions are pretty clear (in fact, I recommend her book, for anyone interested in starting to work with polymer clay - it's the only instruction book I ever bought for this medium) and she covers a lot of basic but interesting techniques.

I also noticed at the HGTV website that at least parts of Carol Duvall's show appear to be available for viewing on-line. Calloo, callay! Not that I have time to watch it, but I do tend to like the polymer clay projects she profiles on her show.

My cold is proceeding apace. I just feel so drained of energy. I mean, I usually feel that way by the time the Short One heads to bed, but today I feel that way right now, in the middle of the day. I know this is not a good thing to be doing when one is sick, but I feel the need for a little caffeine. Hmm, maybe I can have a glass of orange juice then some coffee? What do you think? Will they cancel each other out?

I hope everyone has a great weekend. I'll see you on Monday!

ps. I just found the link to the Donna Kato project on which this pendant is based. Go here to view.

Pendant is lovely; hope you feel better soon. Have been battling summer colds, flu and allergies since the first week of July. Has been a bad couple months. Take care.
