11  Archive of Past Craftster Challenge Entries / CHALLENGE 64 ENTRIES / The Ozonizer: Polymer clay, broken perfume bottle, and old watch gears on: July 10, 2011 07:11:09 AM




Materials:
Polymer clay
broken perfume bottle
old watch gears
small metal eyelet

This is my first Steampunk project ever, and this is also the first time I am ever entering a Craftster challenge.

I accidentally broke the perfume bottle (I didn't store it properly, darn) some time ago, but couldn't bear to throw it away because I knew I could still use it in my future projects.  Good thing I am such a pack rat!

This project was inspired by Christi Friesen's book Steampunkery.  The bottle is covered with polymer clay, and I was careful to "seal" the broken corner so the jagged glass edges don't protrude.  I plugged the hole with clay, and topped it off with a small eyelet.  Although you cannot use it to store perfume anymore, you can attach it to a chain and wear it as a curious pendant around your neck.

I was so excited about this project that I wrote a note to Prof. Contraption, the character in Christi's book.  You can read it here on my blog: http://beadladyangeli.blogspot.com/2011/06/old-air-ozonizer-my-first-attempt-at.html

Amazing work - I love it!

The texture, the eyes, and the owl's expression are awesome.

I finally tried my hand at Steampunk!  I had an old, broken perfume bottle that was lying around in my materials bin, and I thought this was the perfect opportunity to try steampunk.

Blogged about it here:

15  CRAFTY BUSINESS ADVICE / Crafty Business Discussion / Recommended Reading - Craft Inc by Meg Mateo-Ilasco on: February 22, 2010 11:35:51 PM
Hello!

I just wanted to share with you this book I bought a couple of months ago.  Has anyone read Craft Inc by Meg Mateo-Ilasco?  

I love how it's not your average business book, it's light reading but thought-evocative.  And it has interviews with professional crafters who have "made it", pun intended.



It's really handy too - almost like a pocket book. I take it with me everywhere, as I am in the middle of preparing to launch a new line.

I wrote a short post on my blog here.

Hi everyone!  Thank you for all the comments.  I decided to change the name to "Hearts-a-flurry!".  Blogged about it briefly here: http://beadladyangeli.blogspot.com/2010/01/hearts-flurry.html

Just in time for Valentine's!



I made seven pieces, all one of a kind. They're tinier versions of the heart collection I made a couple of years ago. A little under an inch tall, as you can see in the picture below.

The wings are inspired by Christi Friesen's work.  I am a huge fan.



They remind me of the Snitch in Quidditch!

I still don't know what to call them.  I'm torn between "Angel Hearts" and "Wings of Love".  Both sound kind of lame to me. Lol.  Any help?

Thank you for all your comments! 

Update: My cork board was featured in a local interior design magazine here in Manila!  Grin

If anyone has created something similar, I'd love to see your photos!  Please post!

@Grave_13: Thank you!

@ochamelon: The amour pendant is my favorite!  I was thinking it would be too redundant to put "Paris".  Amour worked perfectly.
