It's my baseball jewelry set!
Yes, I am a little bit crazy and obsessed with baseball, so it was only a matter of time before I made some themed jewelry using my polymer clay. These were made a year ago or so, but since I've been feeling a little nostalgic lately, I decided to post them on here.
These are my baseball earrings. They're a little irregular even though I used a bead roller, but it's okay. That way you know they're handmade.
I also painted the stitches on, but I'm going to try and stick them on with bitty little pieces of clay next time I make them. They're very labor intensive, and yet I love them to pieces.
This is what I consider one of my masterpieces. I can't remember what it was that compelled me to make this thing, but I did...and I love it, too.
It's my "Bases Loaded" necklace. I don't know why I called it that because, clearly, there is no one on base. Haha. But still. The bases have "dirt" on them so there was someone on there at one time.
One of the bases. I was originally going to go down to the park and grab some actual infield dirt, but:
a.) People would probably look at me funny and
b.) People spit on there. Don't wanna have to put a disclaimer on my site for THAT. LOL.
So I just settled for some ground-up pastels and I put them on using a paintbrush and sealed it with polyurethane to protect the dirt.
This is a close up of the bicone crystals between each base. It made the necklace look a little less plain vs. just having the bases alone.
Home plate! Someone must have slid onto it. This is the pendant part of it. I haven't worn it yet, but I intend to some day.
So there you have it. The most uses of the word "bases" on Craftster so far, probably. ;P
