"Tigereye" and "Fern"


Got these added to the shop today!

The "Tigereye" is slightly different from the batch I made a few months ago with the same name. Not quite as much distance between color changes, and the colors are slightly lighter, but still very similar.

The "Fern" thread has more variations of greens than did the "Leafy" batch of a while back. It seems different enough to deserve its own name.

Whenever the skeins appear "striped" like this, it means that there is longer distance between color changes than my more "solid looking" skeins.

Notice the real Tigereye gemstone in the top photo? No fern frond available for the "Fern" photo, though - I didn't feel like trudging out in the snow to get to the flower shop to buy one!

The colors are beautiful! Do you dye the polymer clay to match the thread, or does the clay come in a variety of colors? Your earrings look like they'd be so much fun to make!

Oh my, I am glad that the polymer clay comes in colors! And they can be mixed, which is my favorite part! The earrings are fun - I just like playing with stuff to see, "What would happen if..."
