Au Naturale

Not me!  My newest necklace!  I am just loving working with metal clay!  I started this one last night and finished it up today.  It takes a little longer because it involves painting the clay on in layers.  It has to dry completely between each layer.  I think I have 10 or 11 layers!

As with all my other metal clay projects, I'm learning things with each one.  For this one I'd like to learn how to make it smoother.  Since it's from a leaf, I don't know if there is really a way to do that.  It'll take more research I guess!

Oh!  I used an ivy geranium leaf for this.  Hope you like it!
