1  Nerdy Jewelry, Labyrinth inspired, Video Game inspired and more (pic heavy) in Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General by beautifulpirate on: July 14, 2014 02:45:14 PM
I was going to post in polymer clay but a couple of these don't contain polymer clay so jewelry seemed most fitting. Hope you all like what you see!

Loki's helm

Game of Thrones inspired Dragons Eggs. I actually did a lot of these in all sorts of colors- purple, pink, and more. Eventually I am going to do some with little tiny dragon heads cracking out of them or a tiny dragon wrapped around bits of broken shell but haven't had time yet for them.

You might be able to click on the photo to get a bit more up close to see the details. The scales were horribly time consuming but the end product was exactly what I had hoped for.

I have been on a Doctor Who inspired kick lately so lots of that...

These are so beautiful in person. I wish my photog skills were better but they have been washed with a water down bronzing medium so that they slightly glitter and give off an other-worldly shimmer.

I made tiny tiny little "braided" tassles even for these.

These are pendants for necklaces. The blue and green bits glow in the dark...

A friend of mine requested I make this for her so I sent her a pair on her birthday.

My Harry Potter inspired goodies. Many more in the idea book.

That was such a pain to make. I originally thought I would just score lines into my clay for the broom hay but no... it looked awful so bazillions of tiny snakes of clay it was. Also, painting the name on the handle was a pain because it is so tiny.

General geekery for all!

Um, I may have made a lot of these lol

Inspired by The Joker of course

I did some necronomicon necklaces too. This one is a bit creepier but I also did one with a goofy creepy smile full of teeth because the second Evil Dead movie is just sooooo goofy to me. I love it but it always makes me laugh in that weird, dark way.


If you are a fan of Ghibli films, you will understand...

I did some with and without their dinners but they are actually fuzzy. I wish I could take better pics to show you that!

So I think that is it on this post for now. As always, I appreciate comments and critiques! Thanks and I hope you enjoyed what you saw!

2  Been a long time... new food jewelry (pic heavy) in Polymer Clay: Completed Projects by beautifulpirate on: July 13, 2014 07:49:44 PM
I know it has been a long while since my last post but here are some of my newest creations. Been working on a lot of food jewelry and some nerdy stuff (I will make that a separate post later) so here are some of the foods I have been working on.

So to begin, I made this adorable little pho bowl ring. Next time, I will do the meat a bit differently but I am thrilled with how it turned out.

Then, I had been on a pastry and cake frenzy so here is some of that...

Sorry for the poor image quality on this shot. It was the only shot I got of all of them together and I used my phone to snap this shot.

I made the donuts in four types- iced with chocolate, white and pink and sugar dipped. I made a set of whole donuts and bitten donuts.


Cake Slice Charms

Muffins. There are blueberry, cranberry, chocolate chip, and double chocolate. Will work on some banana walnut muffins soon but just didn't get them done yet.

Ice Cream Sandwich Charm

Smores charms. These are some of my favorites.

Chocolate Croissants (pain au chocolat)

French Croissants

Ice Cream Earrings

And some candy stuff
Licorice. I made earrings to go with the necklace but can't seem to find the shots now.

Gumdrops. Still need to do them in yellow and blue. These are such fun little charms.

Rock candy necklaces. Still need to do yellow.

I decided I wanted some fun looking hand mirrors so I made some! Plans for more are in the works.

My newest Chocolate chip cookie design. These are life sized.

But of course, I wanted some itty bitty cookies as well...

And my ramen noodle bowl

So that is about it on the food round. I will try to upload the geeky stuff and the pinup jewelry I made in a couple different posts later this week. Hope you enjoy! I always appreciate comments and critiques!

4  Sooooo many hats! *pic heavy- think Hulk weight in pics* in Clothing: Completed Projects: General by beautifulpirate on: May 08, 2013 12:04:22 PM
I spent the past couple weeks working on some new hats. I still have a dozen or so designs in my head so they will all be made shortly. Got a couple of my gal pals together to model for me!

This one features pockets at the end of the arms. Eventually I will make one like this but with more detail (claws and paw prints I think). The pockets have snap closures so that you can put personal belongings in them, or you can use them to keep your hands warm. Alternatively, the arms can be wrapped around your neck like a scarf. This hat is reversible but I forgot to get a pic of it on the reversed side. Maybe later.

This was a fun hat to make. A local body painter wanted to paint a woman as a buffalo and he asked me if I would be able to make a buffalo hat for her to wear. We should be getting together soon so that he can use it and then I hopefully will get some awesome photos from that collaboration. It is the only hood style hat that is not reversible. The horns are just too bulky to tuck in. All of the hood style hats have a snap closure so you can wrap the hat snuggly under your chin for added warmth.

This is probably my new favorite hat to be honest. It took a lot of time to make this. The coloring is hand painted with fabric safe paint and the painting alone took about 30 minutes. The brain detail is 3 dimensional to a point due to padding and sewing over the brain lines.

Teddy bear hat! Again this one is reversible but I forgot to get the inside out shots Sad Anyway, it has a snap closure under the chin as well.

Some random cat and bunny hats:

These cat style hoods are all reversible and have snaps at the bottom. They can even be snapped on the reverse side too!

Another style of hood hat- a wolf in a pretty mottled purple tone. Reversible and has snap closure

And a dinosaur hat- reversible with snap closure

And here is my new style of octopus hat. It has pose-able tentacles Wink

And that's all for now. As always, I welcome comments and critiques! Thanks for looking and I hop you enjoyed them!

5  I made a unicorn... in Costumes: Completed Projects by beautifulpirate on: April 27, 2013 10:06:50 PM
I love fantasy and myths and legends and all the creatures that go with it. So a photographer friend and I teamed up to create some beautiful creatures such as unicorns, nymphs, fauns, and more.

Here are the pieces before application. I made them myself.

Still a ways to go with the prosthetics in this pic but we were well underway.

Thanks for looking. As always, I love comments and critiques! We will be making a tree nymph tomorrow so be on the lookout for those images in the next couple weeks.

6  By night a makeup artist... *pic heavy and a little gory* in Bath and Beauty: Completed Projects by beautifulpirate on: January 28, 2013 05:44:11 PM
By day I am a crafter, by night I am an artist. A makeup artist that is. I had never thought to share any of my work on here before but I saw this section and thought my makeup work is definitely art. I hope you enjoy my work. Feel free to critique, comment and ask questions.

And if you are in the Tulsa area, I am always looking for new models and/or photographers, etc.

One of things I like to do is combine macabre and gruesome stuff with beauty.
to change your image viewing settings please click here

I also do makeup for product promo shoots

I like doing bright and contrasting colors

I love painting with watercolor makeups

And sometimes I do artistic shoots

Right now, I am working for a local filming company doing a lot of simple zombie makeup and other horror makeup.


Large wounds and zombies:

I do all the basics for makeup too- makeovers, bridal and special occasion makeup, etc but my all time favorite is to do creative makeup for fun photo shoots.

Anyway, I have a huge photo shoot coming up in just a couple weeks and I hope to show off some of the work from that here. Thanks for looking and I hope you enjoy!

Fantastic! The rock candy looks like the real thing. I'm also a new fan of your plugs. I can just picture myself with pizzas in my ears, awesomeness. How long have you been making these food crafts?

Ahhh! Thanks so much! I started in 2009 but my style and skill has really evolved a lot over that time and I only have really had the time to intensely pursue my miniature art over the last year. And even in that time, I haven't had all the time I want but as long as I can always grow that's alright! Here's a pic to show you...

8  Miniature Bento Box Lunch in Polymer Clay: Completed Projects by beautifulpirate on: December 10, 2012 02:28:32 PM
Super tiny and super awesome (imo)! This bento box was made by hand, by me, without the use of molds, down to the tiniest detail. I made the box, painted and glazed it. And then added in some of my favorite bento foods. It has rice (with a small sprinkle of sesame seeds on top), tempura veggies and shrimp, edamame, gyoza (aka potstickers or dumplings), fresh veggies (broccoli and carrots) and a small cup of sauce for dipping. Everything in the box is made from polymer clay. The box itself was made from craft wood. I hand cut and sanded every piece before gluing them together and painting.

I turned the box into a pendant after much debate. I couldn't honestly decide whether to make it a pendant or a brooch. Anyway, the pendant measures approximately 1 5/8" tall by 1" wide. (approx 41mm x 25mm) and is strung on a 24" (approx 60cm) silver plated ball chain necklace.

I think next time, I will just paint little dots on top of the rice for the sesame seeds. It was just impossible to get them tinier than the grains of rice themselves.

This is one of my favorite creations ever. I hope you like it as much as me! Feel free to comment and critique (I love them).

For size comparison...

And a little collage of different shots.

9  New furry animal ear hats in Clothing: Completed Projects: General by beautifulpirate on: November 11, 2012 06:32:15 PM
I've had the chance to crank out a few hats recently so thought I would share with you. I love comments *wink wink* so feel free to tell me what you think.

I made a cheshire cat costume for a friend for Halloween and didn't have a chance to take pics before I gave it to her, but here is a similar hat I made to the one for her costume. The one I made for her has super long scarf like arms down the front sides with pockets so you can put your hands in them.

And it's fully reversible

My husband requested a cookie monster-esque hat so this is what I came up with.

It's reversible

And an action shot from the man himself (being a goofball by the way)...

I made a bunny hat for my daughter since I didn't want to spend a ridiculous amount on a Halloween costume. The ears have wire in them so they can be shaped somewhat. I just dressed her up in a white outfit so that she would be mainly white with a bit of pink.

Pink and Black Cat Hat

The ears are somewhat naturally concaved for a more authentic look.

Action shot!!!!!!!!!!!! It has a snap closure so it closes nicely underneath the chin to make it super warm and fuzzy all around.

Oh yeah, it's reversible too...

10  For the love of food! *pic massive* in Polymer Clay: Completed Projects by beautifulpirate on: October 10, 2012 08:50:28 PM

^^^^^^^TEASER IMAGE^^^^^^^^^

Hi everyone! I know it's been a while since I made a post. But I have had lots of that crazy "life" stuff going on. I was featured as a RAW artist locally twice since my last post on here and it was a blast. (And now they are holding votes for RAW artists of the year so wish me luck!) And I have a couple other big events where my work will be featured soon as well as a magazine article. Anyway, with all that aside, we've had some hardships too. My dad and his wife lost their home to wild fires a couple months ago and it has been heart wrenching for all of us. Needless to say, I haven't had the time or the mind set to craft until the past couple of weeks. So I cranked a bunch out and am now hoping that you all love it all. I'm a glutton for attention so comment and critique all you like!

I've been trying to make my cupcakes look more realistic as of late and these guys are fairly small (3-4 can fit on a quarter) and I feel somewhat accomplished with them. I still think I can take it to the next level soon. Working on some new bases and techniques.

Then there is my new fortune cookie necklaces. My old ones were plain without texturing and a blank ribbon of paper. These feature an adorable heart on the paper.

And then there are the cookies with chocolate coated candies aka m&ms!

And I kind of went crazy on pizza earrings. I did two varieties (for now!)
The first ones are good old fashioned pepperoni and black olive...

Then there is the meat lovers...

And a pizza necklace...

Also some 1 1/2" custom requested plugs for gauged ears with pizzas on them.

And while we are on the subject of plugs...

Apple pies

More pizza (albeit much more simple style)


Simple Donuts

And what goes well with donuts?

And fruit salads...

Speaking of fruit, we have pears:

and we need some veggies too:

and for those of you who can't eat broccoli plain:

If you finish your vegetables, you can have some chocolate.

^^^^Those were fun to make by the way. I bought some kit kats and took bites of them and then froze the leftovers to make molds. Then I layered my chocolate along with my wafer innards (yes innards- I'm from Oklahoma) and more chocolate colored clay.

And my personal new favorite is my rock candy necklace. I hope to make them in different colors soon.
