clay pendants

This fall, I have really been inspired to make jewelry out of clay.  Specifically stamped words inspired by scripture.  Pages from my lectures the last few weeks are filled with doodles, phrases and sketches all up the sides and at the top.  I can’t tell you how much I have enjoyed making these and how excited I am every time a new bach comes out of the kiln.  This winter I will begin selling these in the trading post at SpringHill and they are available in my shop. I so hope they all find good homes, I am growing quite attached to them, but the purpose is to share.  I love the subtle phrases, that are so full of meaning and hope.
