Polymer Clay Bytes! - Turtles

Well, these Polymer Clay Turtles don't bite, but some have gears. You know those wind up toys? My daughter put one in my stocking for Christmas and been thinking of trying that with polymer clay, but the gears those toys come with would in all likely-hood melt before making it out of the oven safely...
Anyway here are a few turtles, some with resin, some with glass...

Wow, Tina, I guess we really are in sync - how funny that I should post my turtle pics today at Create With Joy when you are posting yours here at PCB! I LOVE your turtles by the way - they are just SO beautiful!

I am in Southern CA. You would never ever know that this wonderful area exists if you did not walk the path - the restaurant is in a shopping center and all of this is behind it!

When I was growing up in the Eastern US, each summer, we used to have turtles migrate through. For a few years, I would try to keep the big boxy turtles as pets - I would be able to keep them for a few weeks and they would get tame enough that you could pet them - but after a few weeks, they really wouldn't want to eat anymore and you would have to release them back into the wild. So, it was really special for me to see all of the turtles in the middle of the winter!

Anyway, enough rambling for one post, but you have some amazing pieces on your blog - I'm adding myself to your follower list!

Hugs
