International Polymer Clay Swap – Valentine’s & Twinchies
Posted on January 30, 2014 in In My Studio by Katie Oskin
I love collecting other people’s polymer clay art from around the globe. One of the ways that I have been doing this is by participating in the International Polymer Clay Swaps group through FaceBook.
Valentine’s Day Swap
Our swap this time around was to trade an item that makes us think of Valentine’s Day. My swap partner for this swap was Lupe Meter.
What Lupe Sent
Lupe was so overly generous in what she sent to me, I was astounded. The pieces were gorgeous nd she really paid attention to detail. I love the color combinations that she chose as well. The heart necklace is a super long, opera length necklace, which is my favorite style. I absolutely love it!
See Lupe’s blog post on the swap here.
What I sent to Lupe
I sent Lupe a Twinchie made with a pixelated retro cane veneer (get the tutorial here). I embroidered flowers, leaves, and put a giant heart on the Twinchie I sent to Lupe. The flowers “hang” from the top and dangle toward the heart at the bottom. I also sent her a large heart that I embellished with the embroidery technique. I did not make it into anything and rather chose to leave it “plain” so Lupe could decide what she wanted to do with it.
Thanks for joining me today,
