Finding my way

After so long without posting or getting much done in the creative, I finally feel like I am finding my way again.  I was beginning to wonder if I would ever feel really inspired to do anything creative or if I did, if I would be able to create anything worthwhile.  I Erica and friendsmentioned in my last post that I would be doing a children’s party and sure enough they produced some amazing things in some wonderful colours.  However, even that didn’t get me going.  Then last week I taught a workshop and was feeling a bit of a fraud but as I helped each of my students produce a lovely pendant (I am sorry to say I didn’t take any pictures) I knew that I needed to get back to work. 

New LeavesI decided to start with something I know and in the last couple of days I have made these 2 pendants.  I am really pleased with them.  Although I have made similar pieces before, I thought by doing something I was familiar with I could get back in to the groove and then start off in new directions.  So watch this space.

This weekend I am demoing in Burgess Hill and then have a clay day in London with the London Polymer Clay Group.  Louise Fischer Cozzi will be joining us so that will be a treat!  For more information click here.
