  1. Happy Birthday!

  3. If I understood correctly, here's a comment on your questions:
    1. Of all of your lessons I like the most flowery number 8, because I love the bright colors and he immediately attracted attention.
    2. Have you sold a lot of interesting textures, anyone doing modeling would be interesting to make its exclusive texture at home. Here is my wish.
    Sorry for my english

  4. My favorite tutorial by you would have to be the "How to create Kaleidoscope and symmetric millefiori canes" tutorial. I love all your cane tutorials honesty but I think I like this most because it is so wonderfully colorful and just as impressive as a real kaleidoscope!

    HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!

  22. Hello Iris, and congratulations! You are so right, the year has gone by so fast. I have to say that I would love to see EXACTLY how you create the different petals, so the #1 tutorial, which, sad to say, I haven't purchased. (I already whined about being unemployed-in the US, join the ranks, I guess!!)I love the depth of the color combinations, and am dying to know your secrets.I am also intrigued by the Kaleidoscope and symmetric millefiori...but you said one...so

    ReplyDelete
  23. I would really like to see how maybe to make a framed pendant and matching earrings sort of thing, similar to your bracelet with the "pencil celebration drawing" without using anything to frame but polymer clay...I have attempted a few things using pigments to resemble pewter, but I think you might have what I need in your head to create something that looks finished and "polished". And I want to know a really good way to combine colors, I am in a color rut! Thanks, I am telling my friends on Facebook about this this week!

  24. Hi...Happy Birthday!!!

  26. Happy Birthday!!

    I love your design for the heart pillow beads. They are incredibly attractive, and the shape is unusual.

    ReplyDelete
  27. I'd love to see a tutorial on making buttons. I can get the round shape and the holes :-) but somehow they don't look very finished, or proportioned correctly or something. They look amateurish.

    ReplyDelete
  28. Happy Birthday Iris. I love all your tutorials but I really like the backgroundless flower canes. That was an inspiration to me. I struggled with flower canes for a long time but not anymore.
    Thank you so much. I also love the way you put the Natasha bead together. My Natasha beads have a whole different look.

    ReplyDelete
  29. Iris, I would love to see more things like the Christmas Trees and the snowmen, and heart pillow beads. Love those things. I know what ever you put out there will be a winner. I'm going to put this on my blog tonight.
    Again, Happy Birthday.

  36. Well,

    The tutorial i like most are the cuffs bracelet tutorials like the How to create hollow folded stripes bracelet and cuffs ones. Everytime that i see your tutorials it comes to my mind so many posibilities with 3d visions and not only a flat pendant or earring. I could be so creative having so many techniques. All we need is a little push from our teachers and DONE!! Happy 1 year!! hope you can keep teaching us as you do always!!

    ReplyDelete
  37. Well One thing I want to learn is how to do RINGS. I think of a style were you can have a few round shapes on top of each other in differents sizes where you can have them moved. Or you can make an amazing ring where you can replace the parts like a KIT!!! Depend on your mood you make For Example... A ring with a base of metal clay and the second one could be a red or pink plate on top with powders as texture for a happy mood and a rinestone on top , then we can put a maybe a metal that we can take of anytime we want to change the plate!!!! !!!! Im trying to explain in english so excuse me if don't understand very well. HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!!! And thanks for all your help as a teacher.

    ReplyDelete
  38. I would love to see a tutorial about multiple leaves flowers.

    Maybe even color inspirations and combinations every month or every week.

    How about sheets with different patterns, textures and canes all together to make some pieces and apply to different shapes.

    Good Luck!
