I'd been playing with some partial blends - blends where the individual colors still stand out - and twisting them around. This made me think of snail shapes, so I made up some snail pendant and earring sets. I love the way the twisted patterns turned out, and the colors are warm and vibrant. Wish the snails in my yard looked like this. ;)
I picked up some of the clay pieces I'd cut off, and found myself shaping this yellow and red pinched pendant.
I let my hands fiddle with more pieces and suddenly these curved horn pieces emerged. Making them in graduated sizes resulted in a pin and a pendant.
