Little Woodland Critters

Making those chameleons (see previous post) really got me in the mood for more painting. I've always enjoyed painting and could easily do it for hours on end! So for these next beads I escaped for a while from the careful planing and measuring that goes along with creating colors with clay and formed each new bead in a plain light tan clay. And then I had fun... painting!

It all started with this little fox. I think he'll be a pendant on a necklace... although I'm not sure what I want him to hang on yet - chain, cord, ribbon - something plain and simple I think...

After the fox, I decided to go even smaller and created 7 more critters. They are each about 1/3 the size of the first fox - 20mm - or about 3/4 of an inch. I'm especially happy with the way the little rabbit turned out. For these critters, I'm thinking a charm bracelet with all of them hanging together...

The tortoise and the hare. ;-)
