Gorgeous! Your photos are just superb! I have never learned to work with clay and I have to admire people who can make such beautiful things with it!

Those are all beautiful! And I bet there are a lot of depths in the colors in person!
My favorites are the flower - the long life and the bottom barrette - I love the color swirls - almost looks like wood pattern!
How did you make the copper attachments to attach onto the necklaces? They really set it off great!

Thanks bunches craftsters!!   Grin

Kaleesi:  I used copper wire coiled around a crochet hook.  The ends are curled at the ends so it will not slide out. (imbedded into clay)  No glue or liquid sculpey needed doing it that way.  The wider the bail needed, the more times coiled around hook.  I made the jump rings with the same wire in the earrings to be all matchy matchy.    Cool

Everyone said they liked them, you know how that goes tho.....  Wink

If you get a chance would you show me a picture of the process? I can almost understand what you are saying - but I don't understand how you get it in the clay?

Thanks ThirdMargaret!  Grin

Kaleesi: (and any other inquiring minds)

I used size B crochet hook (no hook side) and 20 gauge copper wire

coiled my ends around, notice how one side is shorter than the other, makes it lay flat.

slice your pendant like so....

place your bail in the slit....

close it shut, I place on flat work surface and gently press it closed, smooth to remove finger prints.  Ready to bake.
