Art Clay Silver

I bet you did not know that I dabble inArt Clay Silver.  I took a class about 3 years ago.  Then, it just kinda sat there.  Over Spring break I had a renewed interest in the craft.  I have 3 designs coming out in"Belle Armoire Jewelry".  I am not yet certified.   It takes 3 days of classes to receive your certification, I never seem to have the time.  But I think there is a class on Thursday on how to make tube beads.  I just might check it out. 

 I just listed 6 Art Clay Silver bird theme pendants at myEtsy shop.  I thought I would share the photographs with you.

There are 7 winners - I decided to add a few beads to the Sari Silk.  The Sari group will be a mystery package.  Maybe the winner can post pictures on their blog.

These winners were picked by randomly generated  numbers supplied byLori Anderson, the hostess of the "Bead Soup Blog Party" and then matched to mixed up entry numbers.  

This has been fabulous experience for me!  I am so grateful to all my new followers.  I will definitely have another contest.  The big give-a-way will probably take place once a year.   I do plan on having smaller contests so check back.
