Clay Every Day – Day 3

This morning, as I was about to make healthy pancakes for breakfast, my stove died.  It’s been on it’s last leg for quite some time and we’ve been putting off getting a new one for no good reason.  So, not only is no cooking happening here (other than microwaving, crock potting, and grilling), there’s no clay baking!   Now I really am going to be forced to do some polishing and jewelry making with all the beautiful beads I have already made.

So, what did I do tonight?  I mixed up some metallic silver and  black clay to make these:

They’ll make an awesome necklace once they are cured and polished, but for now, they’ll just have to wait till I have an oven that works!    If the pattern looks familiar, it’s because I used my new blue texture sheet that I used for the purple and orange pendant to add texture.

Here’s a mystery – last night, while working with the gold and copper mokume gane, I put a stick of clay in the freezer to firm it up for slicing, and forgot about it.  I searched the freezer while ago, and no clay!  Hmmm…..

Off to clean the freezer and to shop online for a new stove!

Till later!
