Beautiful beads all you growing artists out there. I love going to facebook and looking at each and every one of them in the larger picture. Thanks for having the drive to share all your work with us. I wish Cindy had enough beads so all of you could win a few just for trying. Great work! Uuuggs. ~Peggy-B >> This comment was originally posted here: Polymer Clay Contest

Well, shiver me timbers me hearties! Just knew me trusty cutlass would come in handy a slicing of that pirate cane. Trouble is some scurvy knave has raided me treasure chest and made off with all me white clay, Grrrrrrr (Will make him walk the plank when I lay me hands on ‘im). Must send a message in a bottle for new supplies (Could take some time). Naw, can’t wait that long, will send the cabin boy over to the mainland, hoping he don’t run off with me pieces of eight! Me heartfelt thanks to you Capt’ Cindy and yer crew for this long awaited, really amazing. Pirate Cane. Cheers. ~Elaine-F >> This comment was originally posted here: Pirate Cane Tutorial

Carolyn, congratulations on your win of the Cindy Beads. Couldn’t have gone to a nicer person, with your book bead story. The book beads were beautiful in their own right and now the worth of them and your giving nature have been further rewarded. That’s so nice. I bet you are excited. Cindy that was a lovely lot of your beads, you are so generous. Best wishes to you Carolyn, just hug those beads, I’m sure they’ll make you smile. ~Elizabeth-K >> This comment was originally posted here: Polymer Clay Tutor Beads

Absolutely! When you stated your goals for this contest, you were probably wondering if you (or I should say “your students”) could reach them. Everyone has been so enthusiastic, and have overcome their hesitations & submitted entries to the contest. I think you should be happy about this success – your students have reached the goal you set for them! It has been so wonderful seeing all of the beautiful creations others have made. It’s made everyone feel closer to each other. Like, we’re all in this together! Thanks, Cindy & Doug, for this fantastic contest, for encouraging everyone to get busy with their clay and put it out there for all to see! ~Phaedrakat >> This comment was originally posted here: Polymer Clay Photo Entries

My watercolour beads. I started with a Skinner blend sheet, gold-green pearl-blue pearl-red. Then with the finished sheet I worked from one side to the other, so the first few beads I made were predominantly gold, then next ones greeny-gold, then green, then teal, etc. If I arranged the beads in the right order they would almost look like a Skinner blend themselves. I’ll admit I only really tried this technique so I could enter the competition, but now I absolutely love it, and will definitely experiment with it some more. ~Silverleaf >> This comment was originally posted here: Polymer Clay Beads

This IS a beautiful technique Cindy came up with, and she was so generous to share it with us all! But everyone who’s picture is showcased above took that technique, added their own personal touch, and came up with some amazing pieces. Brenda, I see your fabulous cross is included. Congratulations to you and everyone else who’s pics are there! ~Tanya-L >> This comment was originally posted here: Blend and Switch Technique
