I decided to take part in the Thing A Day challenge on the Polymer Clay Central forum. It's for the month of February only, not the whole year which would be far too much of a commitment for me. Luckily this will work alongside the pair of earrings a week challenge as one of my days creations will be some earrings! I don't think I will blog about every single day, I don't want to overload you! If you want to see all of them you can go check my new Flickr Set - Thing a Day February 2012 or Pinterest board . (Oh dear I am a bit obsessed with Pinterest at the moment! There are just so many lovely things to look at! ). I will try and upload the photos on a daily basis but this will be tricky over weekends and school holidays so might have to post a bunch together sometimes but I am going to aim for actually making something everyday!
Anyway enough chat! Along side a mess - here's my creation for today
Six little buttons, about 12mm in diameter. They are for a special crochet project that will be revealed when it's finished! Crochet is what I do when I am kept away from clay, my travel craft if you like.
My name is Cara Jane Hayman and I live in Bristol UK
My first polymer clay work, at age 7, was a tea set for my dolls. I have enjoyed it as a hobby since then but over the last few years it has grown from a hobby to a real passion! I have been lucky enough to attend creative workshops with many of the world’s finest polymer clay artists including Donna Kato, Christine Dumont and Carol Blackburn which has fuelled my passion even further.
I am having a great time exploring many of the endless possibilities polymer clay offers. You can follow me on my journey and find my tips, tutorials and polymer clay creations at www.carajane.co.uk
