The Beauty of Pastels

When I was young, I was a tomboy and definitely did not appreciate the beauty of pastels.  As I have grown older, I have become more appreciative the subtle hues that pastels bring to our every day lives.  I find my eyes drawn to them, whether in the gentle flowers in nature or to the beautiful pieces of artwork that can be found in the Polymer Clay Smooshers guild.

Here are just a few of my favorite pastel pieces:

2 Good Claymates has these beautiful pastel clam shell beads that are handcrafted from polymer clay in her Artfire store.  I absolutely love the subtle highlights in the shells.

DanasJewelryEtc has the most adorable custom made to order rabbits.  You can get them in a multitude of colors, but her pastel rabbits are absolutely adorable!
LifeArtDesigns has a beautiful pastel pink and brass bracelet that is just a wonderful accessory for spring!

These one of a kind pastel polymer clay earrings by Phoenixartstudio are stunning!  I love the hues  that are expressed in this piece.
