So I recently participated in a few swaps, and since my partners both got there packages, I figured it was safe to post my goodies!

First, the Gnome Swap, for which I was super busy.  This first necklace was excruciating to part with. Everything in the tube is tiny and made of polymer. There were little toadstools, a bird house, some leaves, an acorn, a nest, rocks, sticks, a worm.  And the Vial was only about a centimeter in width. Tiny. Then I capped it with a spotted mushroom cap. I may have to make another just for me.

This next is a pin cushion, inspired by something on wist.  I think I'd like to make more polymer-and-cloth pin cushions. It was really simple, and I think the possibilities are endless. 

These were really simple mushroom bobby pins.  I made another pair for my mother in law and myself.

The colors of this one make me think of a seventies kitchen.

These next two were for a swap I angeled for.

I will be making a Radish Spirit necklace, because that guy rocks.

Comments always welcome!

Very nice!  Wish we could see a closeup of all the mini-mini's in the tube though  Cry

Love the pin cushion "in a sculpted base."  Great use of mixed media, and the weight of the base is perfect for stand-alone use.  Love to see any other ways you do them too!

Are all the b&w faces using clay onlays as features?  If so, very nicely done and stylish.

I love "Spirited Away" and you did an awesome job with them. My friend and her children just moved in with me and discovered that movie (kept them quiet and occupied while we were moving stuff around). And I love your pin cushion, may need to make something similar myself.
