1  My own little Edward Cullen <33 in Polymer Clay: Completed Projects by mandajane on: September 24, 2008 05:50:23 PM
I <333 Edward Cullen! (Who doesn't?)  Wink

This is Edward: (played by Robert Pattinson) He's from the Twilight books/movie.

I wish Smeyer had given Edward more defining characteristics, cause he kinda just looks like any old redheaded boy lol. I might go back and put some clear-ish glittery glaze on him eventually lol.

Thanks for looking! <3

5  Strawberry bracelet!! <33 in Polymer Clay: Completed Projects by mandajane on: August 21, 2008 10:16:37 AM
I saw a super cute bracelet in a recent issue of Cosmogirl magazine and thought to myself, "Hey, I could just make that!" so..I did...lol
The original bracelet I saw in the magazine was one from Claire's, but for the life of me I can't find a pic. (And I don't have a scanner  Undecided)

Thanks for looking! Smiley

7  BELLA'S BRACELET & more TWILIGHT inspired goodies!!! <33 in Polymer Clay: Completed Projects by mandajane on: August 11, 2008 05:39:48 AM
Bella's bracelet!! I'm sending it to my very deserving (and unsuspecting) best friend today!  Grin

More Twilight inspired necklaces of my own design..  (I drown everything in glitter, i know i know lol)

I'm not as happy with this one. It was supposed to be a heart-shaped apple, but somehow I don't think it quite looks that way.  Cry

Comments are loved very much!! <333 Thanks for looking! (More to come soon! I'm making stuff for a bunch of us to wear when the movie comes out)

8  TWILIGHT inspired jewelry!! <3 in Polymer Clay: Completed Projects by mandajane on: August 02, 2008 11:22:38 AM
For the Breaking Dawn release party last night I decided to make some new Twilight inspired jewelry. I suppose in retrospect I should've made chesspieces instead of apples, but I only had a couple of hours to make them and I'm sure you get the reference anyway Smiley

I designed this myself..I'm actually kinda proud of it Smiley

They're very glittery <33

I won a costume contest too! I wasn't actually a character really, just more of a respresentation of Twilight in general lol Cheesy

Comments are much appreciated! <3 I'm definitely going to be making lots more Twilight jewelry (can't wait for the movie premiere! YAY!!!)

9  Re: A Sand Dollars Dove [Macro challenge entry] in More Art, Less Craft: Completed Works by mandajane on: May 13, 2008 05:58:02 AM
That's really gorgeous. I've never seen that before. How exactly do you break them apart? I love how much of the structure you can see in the photo. It almost makes it look like lungs.

Mine just broke apart on their own because they were quite brittle after they bleached out, but you can just break it in half if you wanted to. You can usually hear them if you shake a dry sand dollar around, and once it's broken you can just shake the doves out.
Theres also a star-like thing in the middle too, I'm not really sure what it is though. (Possibly it's mouth opening?) This one was the only one I could find in-tact, so they're probably more difficult to find (whole) than doves.

10  A Sand Dollars Dove [Macro challenge entry] in More Art, Less Craft: Completed Works by mandajane on: May 12, 2008 09:47:39 PM
Last year while on vacation in Florida my family and I picked up several dozen sand dollars and a few broke apart while sunbleaching. Remembering things I'd learned in Marine Biology class, I shook these little babies out of the broken dollars.

This is called a "dove" because of its resemblance to the bird. It is actually a sand dollar tooth if I'm not mistaken. There are 5 in every sand dollar and are said to bring good will and peace when the doves are "released".

You can read more about the legend of the sand dollar and its doves here:

Thank you for looking and I'd love to hear your comments!! Smiley
