Polymer Clay Flower Ring. I seem to make these flower rings a lot.  Some of my scrap canes make very good petals and this is a way to use them.

Polymer Clay Fox. I was going to cover it with a quilt pattern, but I like the way the scrap clay marbled together on this little fox.  So I left it as is.

  I made two  more polymer clay house beads (the ones on top).  Boring, I know, but I have a plan for them…. The two new ones were made with left over components from the snail’s trail pattern used in
