Happy New Year

I've been busy busy busy and still am, I have lots of work to do so a quick post of some jewellery i was working on in the lead up to Xmas

Fruit charm bracelet polymer clay commissions
This fruit charm bracelet was a gift for my mother in law.  The fruit strawberries, peaches, pears, oranges and lemons have all been made from polymer clay and combined onto this charm bracelet with glass beads.

Cherry brooch - commissions

This cherry brooch was also a gift for my mother in law, made from AB faceted glass beads and rocailles.

Chunky oblate necklace - personal piece millefiori polymer clayI made this large purple beaded thong necklace for myself to go with a simple black wrap dress i had.  I wanted something that was going to stand out.  All the beads have been made using polymer clay using millefiori techniques and caning.  I took the opportunity to try out some caning techniques that where new to me, Shape shifting cane and Kaleidoscope canes and am very please with the finished result.

Silver Mokame gane pendant - personal piece polymer clayI made this mokume gane pendant also for myself to go with a silver top I was planning to wear for a Xmas get together with friends.  It has been made from polymer clay using the mokume gane technique, this was my first attempt at this technique.

So my plans for the new year, well I have got lots of new polymer clay goodies over Xmas so I will be trying

  • Kilmet Cane I got a new extruder and can't wait to start on this cane
  • Perfect Pearls, never tried these powders

  • More foiling with alcohol inks

  • Mica with Kato clay, I've tried it with Fimo and just don't feel it's visible enough

  • To keep practicing on Image Transfer on clay, I really am not all that good at this technique
So given I have the time with work and all the new techniques I am wanting to learn, I should have lots of stuff to post.
