Today, I'm taking some time to play. I haven't had time lately to try a challenge, but I finally have the energy and time to try one. One of my favorites is on the We're All Ears challenge with Erin Prais-Hintz on the Earrings Everyday blog.
Here's February's We're All Ears challenge. It's based on the land art by an artist from Wales, Jon Foreman. His website, Sculpt the World, shows his amazing natural art. He uses leaves, shells, stones and sand drawing to create wonderful patterns.
Here is one of his stone patterns:

I was so inspired, I had to try something similar. I had some polymer clay lying around that I bought to try some time ago. It is Sculpey Premo in Granite, so it's perfect to create rock beads.
Here's what I created - some stone beads, a molded face and a donut.
I took some of the stones, some wood chips and some waxed thread and created some rustic earrings.
