I've been getting more finished jewelry photographed and listed in my Etsy shop. I recently had larger leaf image stamps made, to account for the higher shrinkage rate of the bronze and copper clay. It will also allow for larger designs in silver than previously available, I'm looking forward to using them! Soon I'll be gearing up for Christmas shopping season, especially creating more horse designs, hearts, etc., and hopefully adding copper and bronze pieces, too. Also, I am pondering a design to create for the Fire Mountain Gems metal clay jewelry contest. I wanted to enter last year, but missed the deadline. I'm hoping to make it this year!
