More awesome entries for the Smooshers Celtic Challenge

I wanted to give you all a closer look at more of the wonderful entries in the Polymer Clay Smooshers guild's Celtic Challenge.  Each of these items was sculpted from polymer clay and was made specifically for this challenge.  These items are for sale in the guild member's shops, so just click on the picture to be directed to the listing in their shop.  And don't forget to browse around a bit while you're there- you can find all sorts of delightful creations from these artists!
This Celtic Swirl Necklace from Wyvern Designs utilizes the mica shift technique which creates a beautiful effect.

The chain is 16" long. The letter G has been hand carved from the circle of polymer clay and a border of polymer clay balls have been added to provide a frame. The pendant was then sanded and buffed to a subtle sheen.
 DreamweaversDesigns created this beautiful green faux leather stamped Celtic Knot Polymer Clay picture frame.

The description reads: This unique faux leather frame measures 3 1/4 inches wide by 2 1/2 high. The scalloped picture cut out is 1 inch by 1 1/2 inches. After curing, the piece was painted with a green/black mix of acrylic paints, wiped with a wet cloth and re-cured to set the paint. The entire frame was then sanded and the front was brushed lightly with liquid wax to bring up the color. The back has a removable slide for standing.
