Books, any kind of book! Get creative and design a book. These can be a notebooks covered with clay. Or an originally designed booklet (use a matchbox, found item, etc). The booklet can be blank or not, you decide. Or...a book depiction! How about a pin, necklace or some such trinket with "books" as the theme? This is your creation!

5/11/02Mardi Gras Beads
Kim Kennedy
The theme will be Mardi Gras Beads. We would need beads big (and gaudy) enough so that we could add our own beads to them to make our own necklaces. So I say 1 1/2" - 2" beads, in purple, gold and green sparklie stuff (Pearl Ex, paint, glitter, whatever) in any shape you wanna. The glitzier the better. Holes should be made through the middle of the bead so that it would hang "face first" when strung. Holes should be big enough for pretty thick cord to hold their weight.

Denise Standifer
Faux ivory or bone or light wood grain pendants (your choice of shape), with your design on it, that fits inside a 3-inch square. They can be smaller, but not larger. Using a stamp for the etching is acceptable, but Id love to see some of our artists show off their drawing abilities. You can do a pencil drawing and gently smooth it onto your unbaked piece and carve it before or after you bake it.
