This is an experimental piece of Sutton slice method, I had not finished the earring when I photographed this. I cracked the pendant piece when I was baking it because of my stupidity. The earring piece I simply placed on the jute cord to make it look like a bead. Sutton slice is fun and the result is stunning, but it is tiring to do on a small tiny rubber stamp which is what I used. When you run the blade over the clay you have press in, the clay lifts up then you have to do it again. You can watch the method over at the you tube by Polyform products demonstrated by Iris Weiss.
