It’s fun to see polymer clay pebbles from another perspective. Carol Simmons’ river rocks may look like the ones Kim Cavender taught me to make using embossing powders.

On closer examination (click on the image for the big view), you’ll see that Carol’s are made from miniscule versions of her organic pattern canes. They’re a visual trick that looks lovely in a bowl in our vacation hacienda in Santa Fe. Walk out the door and the ground of the nearby arroyo is littered with nature’s version….art and life together on a colorful holiday. Lucky me, I’ll be posting from New Mexico all week.

    Carol’s pebbles are beautiful! The colors are wonderful and the organic patterns are great. I’m so jealous, Cynthia! Santa Fe sounds like just your kind of town. I hope you have an excellent week!

        What a feast for the eyes!!! I found myself studying each and every stone. Have a wonderful time in Santa Fe everyone. Since it is dark and rainy in Columbus today…Cynthia you escaped just in time.

          Hope you get to visit our good clay fiend, Lee Kellogg, at Guadalupes Fun Rubber Stamps. She also has a boutique which I can’t remember the name of where she sells wonderful hand woven rayon jackets (one of which Donna Kato beat me out of at Sandy Camp)
