We Make a Good Team!!!

My friend, Mel and I are best mates. We met via the internet and have never met face to face (YET)...but we are so close and miss each other if we dont chat most days (or nights)!!! We know each other well...and we have lots of similarities!!! We both bead, we both love working with Polymer Clay...however we have totally different styles. Which I love.
I wanted to show you a picture of our "team work"!!!
Mel made this necklace yesterday...and MY GAWD...its just so beautiful. My part...I proudly tell the pendant. I sent it to Mel in one of her parcels (we love sending parcels) last year.
So here is is...I am sure you will agree...its lubbly!!!

These pendants are interesting and very bright to say the least...they were inspired by an article in a Belle Amoire Jewellery Lori Wilkes.

I loved the different colours and patterns together. But I am not all THAT in love with mine...hehe!!!!

Oh well...its all experience!!!

I got time to clay!!! wooo
I made some little hearts inspired by the DR. Ron Lehocky tute in Feruary Polymer Cafe.
I admire the work that Ron has done for Cerebral Palsy kids in the US...he makes heart brooches and sells them for $10. All proceeds go toward Cerebral Palsy Kids Centre in Louisville, Kentucky.

To date he has sold approx 7,000. Quite a feat!

I thank Ron for the tute!!
And here are my little brooches...I thought they would be fun to wear now that it is getting toward scarf season in Aus...and with my new waistcoats...for which I have a fetish at the mo!!!
