I have several amazing friends that I just adore. Some of them are super organized while others are a bit more spontaneous shall we say. One of my quirky spontaeous girlies called me with a fun last minute challenge. She called at 3:30pm and said she needed 25 party favors for a bridal shower she was throwing the next day (in her defense her original favors weren't delivered on time). And her budget was "as little as possible please"! The bride to be is a journalist and loves roses...

I am a bit odd, I'm okay with that. Can I go make some broken china jewelry with real broken china...well sure. Do I feel the need to continue my quest to recreate broken china in other materials instead...yes, yes I do.
My latest necklace is an uneven chunk of white polymer clay that I flattened with a glass, hand stamped, baked then colored with markers and sealed with utee for a glass like finish. I feel satisfied now...and I love the way it hangs on my neck! Try it, it's fun!
