After doing the Steampunk Charm swap http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=349575.0, I was inspired.  I tried new things and loved them! 

So I have been creating a bit more.  Here are a few so far:
This is my favorite NOW.


This one was a surprise.  I bought the wooden things to put some postage stamps (with naked lady art) and make them pendants.  I love this too, though.  The copper wire at the bottom is getting replaced with watchwinders, and then I think it will look awesome.


And I started really using polyclay.  Up to now, I always had air bubbles and fingermarks.  Got disgusted at the waste of supplies and time.  So I studied the Polyclay posts for the past few weeks, and a bunch of other websites to try to get better at it.


And I had trouble sticking to keeping things under an inch for the swap.  My partners agreed to go a little bigger, so that was cool for the swap.  But now, my personal goal is to make 20 small steampunk charms under an inch. 
My self-inflicted punishment is really becoming quite enjoyable!  LOL 


C&C is greatly appreciated.  And if you have any awesome tips for polyclay, please feel free to share.
