Art Elements November Theme Challenge – Fossil

This month, Niky chose Fossil as the theme for the monthly challenge. I love this theme, as you may have noticed I already make some tidepool cabochons impressed with ammonite designs.

I made some new ones for this month’s theme, and was quite happy with them.

I also made some polymer cabochons and colored them using alcohol inks – they all have a gold metallic accent on them because at this time of year, I need happy shiny colors to make me feel better! Below you can see before and after color application! I love them! All of these polymer clay ammonite cabochons are available – if you are interested, please let me know!

Finally, I made a mosaic pendant using a real mini ammonite fossil I purchased from an etsy store called Cobble Creek Mining Co.  Below I have the ammonite fossil cleaned and secured.

Below I’m prepping all the tiny shards of glass to add to the bezel.

And finally the finished mosaic piece. This pieces represents the ammonite fossil found under layers of earth and water.

Thank you Niky for a great theme this month! This is a blog hop so I hope you go see what everyone else made this month!
