Tansy, My Forest Girl


Tansy

Back of Pendant
After completing Christi Friesen’s polymer class last week, I wanted to make a pendant using some of her techniques.  I also wanted the pendant to be my style (whatever that is!).
The face of the girl in my creation was a bead given me by a friend and I knew someday she would call to be part of something.  I picked her up, held her, looked at my mix of clay and started creating.  It was fun to figure out how to place the polymer shapes to make her part of the forest and have personality. 
Many years ago, a close friend and I corresponded.  We wrote to each other in our imaginary forest girl’s personalities.  Mine was named ‘Tansy’ and I think Tansy may have infused some of her personality into this pendant.  I just had to share her.
