CLAY JEWELRY DISHES

SATURDAY
August 30th, 10am till 1pm

It’s hard to believe that I have yet to find the ideal system for organizing my personal jewelry. Well, I actually did organize it, but…. It still ends up on top the dresser, instead of the organizer I have inside the dresser drawers. So I created a handful of colorful jewelry dishes to gather my scattered jewelry. Now it looks so pretty, even if its not ‘organized!”

TECHNIQUE: Polymer Clay
SKILLS: You have them!
COST: $49, includes all supplies to make 2 bowls.
