Tonight’s blog post stems from this new-found “sense” of seeing ordinary items in my surroundings as potential design ideas for metal clay projects. Specifically, Toys with Textures! Click the photos for extra close up detail.

Tire tracks would look great as a border or even a statement as if “..you’ve run my heart over..” on a heart pendant!
The even spaced schoolbus windows would set the stage for a cool pattern for a ring band! Same idea with the toy mini piano keys! (See top photo for my Piano Ring design, showing the back detail of the mini keys.)
Here is another photo of my Piano Ring, showing the front detail of the ladies version. Ruby Red Rose laid tenderly atop the keys!

Little detailed push buttons on play phones for adding accents of tiny triangles, bitty hearts, etc. I even found a tiny heartbeat line design like a hospital monitor which would make a super cute Valentine’s Day item!
Little handprints, little hats, tiny flowers and plants, shoe prints, lines, dots, stars, AMAZING!
