 Kiss Thankyou Drayag!

Oh Claire, you are so sweet!  Smiley When you go for so long without making something you really start to lose your confidence, you know  Shocked I need to make more of those beads to sell in sets, been planning to but wanted to get better at it first, I think these were much better than my first  Grin

These are really fabulous pieces.  I love that your inspiration seems to be more a mixture of architectural forms and construction processes with an affinity for organic shapes.  Its a really unique look at least from the steampunk themed polymer clay pieces I have seen on here in the past. 

Great Work!

It would be really cool to see some of these transformed into larger pieces like furniture or something, where the original construction elements (like the cylinder bead in the 3rd picture) could then perform some sort of function as well as ornamentation.

Thankyou! I really, really find I am most inspired by shapes and intersections, too. I come from a background of woodworking, scrollsawing, and designing and building 3 dimensional painted woodcrafts- I thing a lot of it comes that experience. But it's all still kind of new for me with polymer clay... I so hope to build on it in the future and to make my pieces more mechanical....hope to =)

Maybe not furniture though lol But if I ever get back into decorative concrete work, I know what I'll be making =)
