Crackle Medallion Scarf Jewelry

I always wanted to use inks more with my polymer clay but found them to be rather intimidating due to them being difficult to control and work with.  Barb Fajardo's "Crackly Goodness" tutorial gave me the jumpstart I needed to overcome my fear and I have now been challenging myself to experiment further.  The "crackling effect" was not really what I was after but more the gorgeous rich colors the inks can give.  My main  intention was to make buttons but I then decided to experiment further by creating other pieces such as eyeglass holders, shawl pins, earrings and finally some new scarf jewelry pieces.

These are some bails and matching beads ready to assemble.

Some of these are now available at Linda's Quilt Shoppe's booth at the Quilt BC 2013 show that is on until this Saturday.
