Experimenting with a Faux Knitting Technique

When I came across some some of the faux knitting techniques in polymer clay on the internet, I was certainly intrigued.  I finally pulled out some scrap clay and my extruder and gave it a try.  Here are some heart brooch pendants that I created using the technique shown by Claire Wallis on her flickr site and Meg Newberg on her blog.


These were certainly fun to create with lots of possibilities for further experimenting.

This technique is time-consuming but the result is gorgeous. I love the brown one particularly. Yay for scrap!
