February meeting report 2011

Hi Y'all,

Our February meeting was great! We have a new member, Linda. She and her husband do beautiful jewelry. He cuts and polishes the stones and she wire wraps them. She has recently gotten interested in polymer clay. Welcome Linda. She brought some of her lovely pieces to show. Brenda brought one of her fabulous necklaces with a cold connected metal piece that she learned to do in a class with Kim StJean. Kathy showed us a silver pendant with a bezel that she had made in a silversmithing class. Cheryl showed us how to make cool canes using our extruders. Maggie did a quick demonstration on how to use small glass bowls as a mold of sorts for polymer clay bowls. We got busy making canes , extruders squeaking away. Some of us used our canes slice by slice applying them to the glass bowls. Some of us made sheet from our canes to drape over or even in the bowls. The result was at least one broken extruder and a bunch of unique bowls ranging from very serous elegant ones to a funny one with purple feet (complete with toes).

Our membership fees are due at the March meeting

Next meeting: Back by popular demand - Kathy will demonstrate turning polymer clay on a lath. It is such an amaizing technique. Hope you all can be there.
