Think Pink in October


For some strange reason, I have been making quite a few things in pink in the last couple of weeks. This week I finshed a little felt face brooch and a polymer and silver necklace - all very girly and pink!  Perhaps my new granddchild due in December will be a girl?
The little brooch is made from a piece of handmade felt which I made while doing a demonstration at a workshop , and the spikey bits came later, again from a felting experiement. I put them together with one of the little faces I use for my Feltfollies, and here is a different look brooch.  The necklace heart pendant was designed to fit one of the little silver pieces I made when I was first learning to work with silver clay ( Precious Metal Clay - PMC). Then, I used to have bits of clay left from projects because of poor planning, and to practise, I used to make buttons or pieces I could use on dolls. This one didn't get that far and found its way onto a polymer clay shape.

Thinking Pink in October, however, is a good thing.  October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month and in a couple of weeks, Monday 26th October is Pink Ribbon Day.http://www.pinkribbonday.com.au/  If you haven't thought about it yet , please remember to buy pink merchandise from the Cancer Council campaign, hold a "Girls' Night In "to raise money for Cancer Research, or  just remember to take good care of yourself , book in your mammogram, and stay healthy.
