It is that time of year again. Soon the smell of deep fat fried everything… will fill the air. I am talking about the San Diego County Fair. I entered two items in this year. First a necklace made from my Kaleidoscope cane beads. I had a particular vision in my mind. I kept thinking I should have taken pictures along the way. I would get the chains strung and then I would think of an idea that I thought would make a better design. So I would change it to the new idea. I think I went through at least 3-4 different variations. Even after I took pictures of it so I would have them to show you I changed the back necklace. I didn’t like it having the clasps on each side of the end of the three strand chains. I changed it to a single lobster claw clasp which hooks in the back. So if you want to see the final product you will have to visit the fair. Next time I will tell you about the other entry. It has a story also…. -K

Using Polymer clay with Mica in it allows you to make things using only one color of clay if you choose. These beads where made using a purple pearl color and the differences in the color is the mica. When you show the different sides of the mica you get darks and lights. I used a ripple blade to cut a stack. on some of the beads. Then I cut different shapes using Kemper cutters. Once the beads were baked I wired them and strung them between chain to make this necklace. -K
