Carrie - here are pictures are some metal clay pieces I've made for myself. I think if you click on the picture you can see more detail. Let me know what you think!
Fine silver pendant with hand building. If you look close there is a tiny cubic zirconia nestled into the flower. The stones are faceted tanzanite.
I cast leaves and twigs with the clay. I cast these two sweeties to remember a camping trip with my entire family last summer. I wrote the date of our trip on the back of the leaves.
This is my version of an identity bracelet. The organic circles/ovals have my name, my favorite scripture, and other favorite things that describe me.
I learned how to make hollow form beads out of the clay as well. They're a pain to make but worth it. These beads are strung onto sterling box chain for to make a sturdy bracelet. I wear this one and my 'id' bracelet all the time.
