Art Elements challenged us to create swirls.
This first one is a black hole pendant, designed to honor the life and work of Dr. Stephen Hawking. I like to think that he is soaring now, like he did in zero gravity for his 65th birthday.
I created another black hole pendant to honor his wife, Dr. Jane Hawking, a truly noble woman.
Both pendants were created with polymer clay. Both have elements of my secret Opal Polymer Clay.
Eye of the Storm uses a similar technique, using many different layers of polymer, translucent, pearl, opal and metallic. It is a paperweight.
This is a Happy Rock that I made for a friend, using more of my Opal Polymer Clay. I embossed the words HAPPY ROCK on the back of the rock.
The last is a set of FIVE SMOOTH ROCKS that I made for my brother who is facing a “giant”. I used my Opal Polymer Clay and metallic clays for these.
