A few days ago I described a process that makes striped sheets from clay scraps which are then cut into slices to make a checkered or plaid look. It's a really fun thing to do with your bits and pieces, and I really like watching the patterns just sort of "emerge" as you place one cut strip next to another.
Here are four examples of pendant and earring sets I made using this technique. The width of the slices I cut gave the pieces different looks. The coral set to the left was made with wider slices while those in the turquoise set on the right were thinner.
They all have a Magic Gloss finish which adds depth to the design.
