More Mokume Gane And a SMALL blog candy

I couldn't wait to try more of my new favorite technique. This one is totally flat, I wasn't afraid to cut more deeply into it. I think this look is almost looking like a snake skin.
Close up. *Oh and I only have a handful of colors of clay, is why I'm rocking similar colors*
Ok, then I took the scraps and tried to put them on a gray scrap from last time, to make a necklace, but it looked weird. So I mushed them up in a swirl, then pressed a stamp into them and did the cutting to get this pattern. You can NOT see what the stamp was because the veriation was already random. But it's a cool look still.
Second view.


The blog candy is the pendant necklace. I don't hate it, it's cool. But it doesn't go with anything I have, I don't wear much gray. If you think you'd enjoy it please tell me so in the comments. I'm happy to send it to you. Unlike tradational blog candy where there is a drawing the FIRST person who says that they would enjoy this pendant can have it.
If you want to comment on my general awesomeness but don't want the pendant that's fine, just don't say you want it in your comment!
The stamps are all by Cornish Heritage Farms.
