Clay Roses and More

I always get so excited when I have come up with something new. Do you know that feeling? And I love to share it with my friends and family.

Now this idea had been rattling around in my head for some time...but my MOM gave me the boost to really do it. You see, she is so sweet and loves my creations. So I had made for her some pretty yellow clay ROSE clip-on earrings for my mom to give my 94 year old grandma for Christmas this year. Mom asked if I'd make her a pin with yellow roses on it too. So that got the juices started...and well, you know how the saying goes...THE REST is HISTORY!
I did decide to test some of these on my etsy and selling blog. I sure would love to hear what you think.

Here's the whole collection with the YELLOW inspiration pin included. Then, you can see the many others I have and a few close ups.

Hope you enjoyed my show and tell!
Have a great day! Lorena
