Hodge Podge pairs

Item Description

I have always been fascinated by patterns. Especially if they are colorful. And lately I have been experimenting with making polymer clay "textiles" that I can use in my work. So I started a trolling around for inspiration patchwork in fabric.
 

hodge·podge
 
/häjˌpäj/ noun
  1. 1: a confused mixture
     
    2: something made up of an incongruous variety of pieces or parts

I think that my whole life is a hodgepodge of sorts, filled with a random mixture of colors, textures, patterns and shapes.The cool thing about patchwork, mishmash, jumble or potpourri approach is that anything goes!

Each month I try to challenge myself. This month I set out to adapt a look that I have been working on for other jewelry pieces - bracelets, pendants -  into some components for earrings.

Introducing: The HodgePodge Collection

These are made from a variety of canes and blends that I have made myself in my polymer clay work. To make these I have to make larger sheets that are filled with a crazy mish-mash of cane slieces and polymer clay veneers. Then I use these special micro cutters that I found (meant for leather work) to make the shapes. These are just the initial pairs that I have created, but I know that I will make other shapes and color palettes. Lots of possibilities here!

I think it will be fun to experiment with drops that are different sizes and adding in other beads and metal for a more layered effect. I think I will have fun making more of these components, a go-with-anything mix of colors and patterns to brighten up the coming spring.

Details:

You will get ONE PAIR.

Each pair is unique in color and texture, cut from adjacent spaces on the veneer sheets. 

Sizes range from 1 1/8" to 1 1/2" long.

Select your preference by number. Once these initial pairs are sold out I will update with more as I make them.

Note: Additional pictures show how to use them. Earrings are not included in this listing.
