“What are you working on now?” We asked that question here at Rio and discovered Gregg Burgard’s whimsical and creepy “Zombie Beads”. For us, it’s completely inspiring to see a work-in-progress and hear about its evolution. Check out Gregg’s charms and then enter to win $10 in Rio cash, by sharing a photo of what YOU are working on now!
It's a contest!

A couple of weeks ago we posted Shelby’s BRONZclay challenge, and I hope that since then, many of you have been noticing how boring your kitchen (pantry/bathroom) drawers are, and how splendid they’d become with gorgeous hand-crafted bronze knobs! Accept the challenge. . .
To mark Yvonne Padilla’s Bronze Metal Clay book anniversary, I thought it would be fun to take on one of the projects myself. And why not share the love and have our blog readers do the same? Why not make it interesting and have readers submit a photo of their finished pieces and have Yvonne choose a winner?
