These are a little out of my comfort zone, made with a mudpile mokune gane technique from some eye-popping bright scraps, as are their Natasha bead friends currently doing time in the tumbler. They turned out so cute though, so here they are, nuggets to become bracelets for upcoming spring shows!
My first love in clay is canework. I love making the little pictures and the magic of each slice. But this season I challenged myself to try to work on other techniques and mokune gane was one of those.
I made a basic mg stack, translucent clay and silver leaf. Then a base bead of purple and translucent – which ended up a rather brighter and … er.. more festive purple than I intended – and some smoothing, sanding and polishing.
