These button-like polymer pendants from Tel Aviv’s Hila Bushari were inspired by a glass artist. Multi-layered, multi-colored, multi-textured designs make for a sumptuous effect. And here’s Hila’s Etsy shop. Would some of her candle holders look good on your holiday table?

You may be waiting for a report on my Las Vegas experience but it’s taking me a while to digest all that I learned. This quiet midwestern girl is easily overwhelmed by the glitz and glamor of sin city. I didn’t lose a nickel in the slot machines but I managed to drop a significant sum in the Clay Carnival store. Polymer is a much safer bet for me.

    Aloha Cynthia!

    It was great meeting you and being a classmate in the “chatty” room at the Clay Carnival! It was an honor getting to know you and having you as a part-time oven watcher when Sunni was absent. Not that YOU were ever absent from class, lol.

    With fond memories and a hope that we meet again,

    Sarah, aka Aunty

      So sweetly charming! Lovely colors too. They remind me of the ornate, painted plaster ceiling medallions you see in very old buildings. Lovely!
