The May meeting of the Central Mississippi Polymer Clay Guild will be on Saturday, May 15, 2010, at 10:00 a.m. at the Pearl Library, Pearl, Mississippi. The focus of this meeting will be petal canes and how to use them to build multi-layered flowers. These flowers can then be used in a variety of ways on a wide range of surfaces in addition to being used to make unique one-of-a-kind jewelry. Myra and Annette will be demoing this process for us.
