PCAGOE Challenge

Another group I am involved with is the Polymer Clay Artist Guild of Etsy. We are all working in the same medium, yet our styles vary wildly. Seeing everyone's work highlights the range of possibilites in polymer clay - it's quite remarkable. Visit the PCAGOE blog at the link on the right hand side of this page, or look at our Flickr group of photos here

The first thing we did was donate pendants for charity.

Then some members created letters to spell out our guild name.

The latest activity is a creative challenge that folks will vote on. One of the voters will win a prize and the challenge winner will too. The theme for the first challenge is "Romance" in keeping with February's holiday. Here is my entry which is titled "Spring Romance Cha Cha Bracelet". It incorporates 32 handmade polymer clay beads, lime-colored freshwater pearls, ruby-colored crystal rondelles, and tiny lime green crystals, all handwrapped with sterling silver.

Even though I've been making bracelets like this one for awhile, it was hard to come up with the idea. I had a few pieces I tried that didn't work out, but I am really pleased with the final product! I'll let you know what happens and where to go to view the other entries.
