Very pretty Smiley  Thanks for the shout out!

I really like how you incorporated the bail into the piece through the loop at the top.  It gives the whole thing a very organic feel.  This turned out beautifully.  You must have done a LOT of sanding work!


 First of all, thank you for the nice words...  Grin  I was going for the organic feel, so I'm glad it came through...  Smiley

 As for sanding, I didn't have to do much on this one. I did add a few thin layers of "watery" clay, although it was clearly not enough *shakes head*.  But on the one I'm finishing now ( I designed and made specifically for another friend), I'm sanding the crap out of it. That design is totally kicking my butt. Apparently, when designing, I didn't think the actual process through... Tongue


 Thanks again, guys! <3

I love it! I would've never guessed it was clay.

Poe Poe, itt's PMC. Precious Metal Clay. It's like clay when you work with it, but after it burns, turns into pure silver. Reaaaally cool!

That's really cute!  Give peas a chance Wink  BTW, what size is it?  I really want to do some PMC one of these days, but I'm not sure whether a hot pot be the best "heating" choice for me . . .

Jesser ~ First of all, thanks for the nice words. Smiley

 This pendant is about 1 1/2" (give or take) and quite solid (in fact, the final piece was fairly heavy(!), which surprised me)...  Because I plan to only "play" with pendants (I'm working on my second one for another friend), the hot pot is fine for me for a while, and I love that is SO easy to use. But if things eventually progress, I'll eventually get a (small) kiln in the future.

 I don't think I'll work with a torch, though. The ADD in me would get bored so quickly, I would probably never work on another piece... Cheesy

   I can't believe I never posted this... Huh In fact, I can't believe I haven't posted in a while. Unforgivable. *hangs head in shame*  I must give a shout out for the other "peas in a pod" (which, btw, is *beautiful*) thread to inspire me to post again. Smiley

   My first complete PMC piece! I made for a dear friend (who has 2 kids) in a "hand-made" swap (among other things). It's not perfect (or anywhere near, even.) and it's not as smooth as I liked. But it was a great lesson in how the clay behaves, etc...

    I didn't have any sulfur or black max, so I made it all very "bold" to give enough light/shadow effect, kwim?  I also didn't have many jewelry supplies (in SS), except for some jump rings and crimp beads, so I improvised a design that would work with it. But I told my friend that she could just slip the (un-crimped) crimp bead and use the pendant elsewhere.  Wink

   I *loved* working with PMC (not the texture per se, but the "magic" effect of seeing a clay piece in full silver. What can I say... I'm love this kind of thing.. Cheesy), and I specially loved my little hot-pot! So easy to use!






Thanks for looking! <3
