Like whoa something non-lizard-related!

I had a ton of scrappy clay (ugh it's like leaving the last bit of milk in the jug and not drinking it, it was driving me crazy having all of these bits laying around) and some pieces had gotten stuck together and I was mad about that, so I just started rolling them absentmindedly, watching tv, and I looked down and really liked the colors in it. I ended up flattening them, baking them, and putting a gold hoop in them. I also coated them three times to give them even more of a gloss. I gave a few to friends and they went over really well, so I tried a few other color combos.

The middle of the pic shows nine of the pendants with a quarter in the middle for size comparison. The upper three and bottom four pics just show close-ups of some of my favorites.

I reeeeeally like the "Joker"-looking color combos (greens and purples) and the "peacock" color combo (I put in purples and blues and copper and a few extra bits here and there). My favorite is probably the top left because of the purple-to-blue gradation in the bottom, I loooove that combo.

No wait I like the one on the bottom left because the copper made a kind of hearty shape ^___^

No wait I like the one on the right because it looks like a sun in a barren landscape



Polymer clay, baked, coated three times in protective glaze, with 14K gold-plated hoop. I was thinking of selling these little guys for just a buck or two apiece but I don't think anyone would be interested ^___^ I love the way they look though!

Some great results from just clay scraps - I have a question though please, what do you use for glaze ( what type I guess I mean ) ? Thanks :)

Mod Podge gloss, Sculpey Gloss Glaze, Future Floor Finish, or a mix of two or three of those.

I'd buy one if I could, I would likely keep it on display somewhere in my overly crowded room rather than chance breaking it, but I would probably by one.

Well nice work here too, obviously, because you can't ever touch anything that isn't golden.

Oh my goodness! I love these! I would totally buy one, or a lot depending on cost. I use these types of pendants for my hemp jewelry that I sell.
