I love turquoise. It's my favorite stone, and my birthstone as well. So today I decided to create some pieces that would have the look and feel of turquoise, without worrying too much about getting it exactly right. 

I wanted these pieces to have some complexity and depth to their color, so I mixed two colors of copper mica powders into the turquoise polymer clay. One of the coppers was fine-textured, and the other was coarse, sort of like glitter, and I really like the results.

 I also tried to keep the pieces rough-cut, like stone, rather than smooth and sleek in their sculpting. After baking, I added touches of turquoise mica powder, as well as a bit more of the coppers, and hand buffed the pieces. I made a small bird figurine, an owl figurine, which I gave to my daughter's friend, a rabbit pendant, and two stylized dragon pendants -- very different from each other. My favorite of all these pieces is unusual. He is the piece that I am holding in the first picture of this post. I call him my Aztec Dragon pendant. All of these turquoise pieces except for the owl can be found in my" target="_blank">Etsy shop.
