More Fun With the Ripple Blade Technique

These buttons were made using a stacked mokume technique.  We call these buttons "Moonscapes" and make them in a variety of colors.

After cutting out our buttons from the decorative clay sheet, we usually have some small pieces left over that are too nice to scrap but are the perfect size to make some snaps!

Snaps and Interchangeable Snap Pendant

We had some extra stacked clay sheets so I had to play a little more with the ripple technique and just love the results!

The ripple effect in these pieces are 3-D -- similar to a ripple potato chip.  This photo of a side-view here shows it a little better:

Naturally all of these pieces are mounted on a snap rather than adding a necklace bail or brooch.  The snaps are so awesome as the pieces can be interchanged and worn so many different ways.  I especially like them on the plain snap pendant with the tube bail that fits onto the thick buna cord.  Here it is on the frost white softglass cord from Shades of Clay.

We now have some of our snap base items and decorative snaps listed in our Etsy shop with a larger selection from our Snap Decisions Collection in our online store.
