Janet Bouey strings many design decisions into a visually rich necklace on PolymerClayDaily.com

Vancouver Island’s Janet Bouey shows us how great a collection of scraps can look when gathered into a necklace. She’s in a show on Vancouver Island this weekend.

This photo came as my mountain of scrap from vacation working/playing confronts me. Thanks to Janet, I’ll be covering some extruded tubes for future use. Bake, slice, assemble and somehow those many design decisions, mistakes and all, add up to a visually rich necklace.

I’m checking to see if I remember how to post after a month off. Whew, it all comes back. See you soon.

      So simple yet so effective, this is a great example of how to use scraps.
      I am so glad you are back! I was suffering Cynthia Withdrawal.

        I love this! Just had my scrap sorting session yesterday, I’minspired again.
        And what a delight to see PCD in my mailbox again. We missed you Cynthia, but your break was well deserved. I can’t imagine how hard it is to come up with the new brilliant every day. You could always make it PCAD (almost daily) or PCW (weekly) when you “semi-retire.” Nah!

          I love this! I just wish there was a magnified view as I can’t see the detail very well.
