I first met Marie at Ravensdale 2006. At that time, I was new to the polymer world and did not know the extent of her history with polymer. All I knew what that she was a very kind lady who encouraged me to put some of my pieces up for sale in the Ravensdale store. I actually SOLD a piece!
Since then I have had the opportunity to get to know her a bit more at several NWPCG Clay Camps. And I try to take a class from her every time she has been able to attend.
This time, I couldn't wait to learn the secrets behind the lovely earrings she had been showing on FB for months. I was not disappointed. Since Clay Camp, whenever I have the time (not much now that summer is finally here .... so much to do that pulls me away from the clay) .... I have made more Marie Segal Inspired Earrings.

|For these, I combined Marie Segal design with the translucent canes I made|
in Kim Day's class. Now I have earrings to go with the bracelet!
