Color Graduated Extrusions

A few days ago, Cynthia Tinapple of Polymerclaydaily posted a link to a wonderful, short and clear tutorial from Bettina Welker on an easy way to get a blended effect with extruded clay.  I love extruding, and hadn't done any for quite a while.  Thank you Bettina and Cynthia!

This post was all the push I needed to get out the extruder and try my hand at this blending technique.

I love the results!  As you can see from the pictures here, I got carried way - had to try at least 4 different color blends and then turn them into something wearable.  These photos are of pendants.  I also made some brass channel bangle bracelets, and earrings are heading to the oven soon.  Perhaps a brooch or two?...
