@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.

The fillagree pendants are beautiful.  Where do you get your findings??

Hello!  thank you! There are a lot of lovely filigree components on etsy, try to do a search for "brass filigree" under supplies. Smiley

thanks for the kind feedback NH822, riechan, Seraphina_de_Sangre, razzledazzelOConnel! Smiley

It's been a long time since I posted here!

I just wanted to share the stuff I've been making over the last few months.

I tried combining filigree with polymer clay to lend p.c. that luxurious look of "real jewelry".







Here is another one made with filigree, but using a different technique.  I photo-transferred images onto clay, baked the tiles, then set them onto the filigree pieces by wrapping.

How to make an embellished/clay-covered locket
For beginners
Also posted here: http://beadladyangeli.blogspot.com/2009/03/diy-wednesday-cupcake-locket.html

What you need:
Metal locket
Strong polymer clay (I recommend Premo)
Texture sheets or rubber stamps
Craft knife
E6000 glue

Before you begin:

1. Condition the clay
2. Clean the locket. Wipe off any dirt and oils that may have been transferred from your hands.
*TIP:  Work with the locket open.  Every once in a while, check the hinges to ensure they remain clay-free.

Instructions

Step 1. Make a clay ball.















Step 8. Add other embellishments (like the 2D cupcake from the previous tutorial: http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=291611.0).

Step 9. Bake according to clay manufacturer's instructions. Read more.

Step 10. Repeat all steps for the reverse side if you wish.

TIP: Over time, the clay will get detached from the locket. So if you want your polymer clay lockets to last, follow these extra instructions:

After baking

Step 1. Peel off the clay from the locket.

Step 2. Apply a thin layer of E6000 glue to the clay.

Step 3. Attach the clay back onto the locket.

Step 4. Let glue dry for 24 hours or more.

And you're done!

Thanks for the heads up about the broken link!  I can't seem to get the hang of posting stuff here.

Thanks for all your kind words!

I stitched after baking.  Wink

Added new pics (the gold disc with the royal purple flower).  This one took 4 hours and 180 stitches. whew.
