Various Techniques

My favorite technique depends on my mood. I like working with the pearlex powders, then I shift and make mokume gane, right now I'm trying to make pendants that look like glass using translucent clay to show some depth. Oh, art sheets are really neat too.

Oh my goodness, they are stunning! Do you give lessons? Or is there a book (or books) that you would recommend so that I could try to learn those techniques? Your pieces are just beautiful :)

Thank you all sooo much!! @ Meghann, next time you are in Maryland look me up and I'll show you how I did it LOL 8-). I have so many books that I initially bought when I started working with clay, I do a lot of googling {?sp} to look at free videos, and I joined Cindy Lietz' clay tutorials at beadvideos.com. I have a great ability to see things in my head that I think will look good, unfortunately I can't always make the real thing quite like I picture it!! Just keep researching and practicing.
