11  Cane and other more adult jewellery (i.e. not food)! (not many pics this time) in Polymer Clay: Completed Projects by JessMeg on: July 09, 2008 05:19:49 AM
I decided to play with caning a bit and I quite liked the result so I made a few things with it (sorry for the bad pictures, the good camera ran out of battery half way through my photoshoot  Cheesy)

Flower earrings and pendant:

Black/Green/Blue cane earrings (2 pairs) and pendant:

Fire colours cane earrings (2 pairs) and pendant:

(if you look at the round earrings sideways they look like halloween pumpkins - to me anyway! and I quite like the pendant because it's quite rounded on the surface)

3 Round Designed pendants (sorry about the super blurry photo):

The one on the left was inspired by marine life and plants
The centre pendant is caned with orange and red petalled flowers with grey swirling and some seed beads
The last pendant is an abstract version of peacock feathers.. or that's what I was thinking of when I made it anyway!

Fuschia earrings:

I really liked these so I decided to play with making them in blue.

Here are the blue versions without hooks attached:

Swirly filigree style balls (pendants/keyrings etc):

I quite like these but I was just playing with the technique people used on those canvas works.

That's enough for now!
All comments are welcome - even criticism!

13  Novelty Drawing Pins/Thumb Tacks/Push Pins/(whatever else they're called!) in Polymer Clay: Completed Projects by JessMeg on: July 09, 2008 04:58:33 AM
I made these for university because I saw some really cool bug ones at the science museum in Paris (haha geeky I know!) but they were rather expensive! Then I decided I could make different themes and I'll probably give some to my friends for when we all part ways!

My favourites - the roses:

Ladybirds (not ladybugs  Grin):

Sweet cakey/sugary things:

14  Plant pot decorations (!?) - Dragonflies! (With a few pictures) in Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General by JessMeg on: July 09, 2008 04:54:53 AM
I found all this coloured wire so I decided I had to do something with it, and I also wanted to make my Grannie a present for when we go and visit her later this summer (she lives in South Africa and we live in England).  So I decided to make dragonfly pot decorations because she has quite a few pot plants and likes that sort of thing!

Here are a few images - they're quite easy to make and look quite nice (I think anyway!)

My favourite:

This one's smaller but I still like it Smiley

That's all! All comments welcome, including criticism!

15  Dragonflies and other creepy crawlies wind chime! (a few images!) in Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General by JessMeg on: July 09, 2008 04:49:15 AM
I hope I put this in the right section! Sorry if I'm wrong!

I used coloured wire and beads to make the different creatures. The spider's body is made out of marbled black and purple polymer clay.

The top of the windchime was left over from one that broke a while ago so I decided to make use of it - I'd just been making plant decorator things (the ones that you poke in the soil). I just used jewellery wire/thread to suspend my creepy crawlies with beads etc crimped at different heights.

Hopefully the pictures will be ok, it's quite hard to see the whole thing with all the shadows so I took pics of the individual strands too.


My favourite  Grin:

All comments (good or bad!) are welcome!!

16  Customised old ballet-style pumps! in Shoes: Completed Projects by JessMeg on: May 20, 2008 12:40:31 AM
Hi everyone,
I'm fairly new here but I thought I might as well post this here..

I decided to redecorate my sister's old pink pumps as she was going to throw them away (they were VERY grubby).
I just covered them with some fabric straps and stuck on a bow (made from the ribbons in tops to hang them up).
They aren't very durable and will probably fall apart pretty soon, but at least I prolonged their life a bit! - My sister decided to keep them!

Here's a picture of before and after:

17  Fimo Soft creations.. large mix of things! in Polymer Clay: Completed Projects by JessMeg on: May 19, 2008 10:29:58 AM
Hi everyone,
This is my first post on Craftster ever, so sorry if my pictures are massive or don't come up at all!

I got some fimo soft recently and I've been making away (during study leave.. should definitely be revising!)

This is my favourite thing I've made so far.. it was the first too! It's not amazing by any means but it's yummy Smiley

Some pacman earrings

I tried making a cake which was fun. Not really sure what to do with the pieces now - ideas welcomed!

Some charms that I made for my friends as leavers' presents - I've had my last day at school ever now!

This is my geeky bracelet in the process.. I've run out of inspiration so if you have any ideas of other sciency things I can add please suggest! So far I have - plant cells, red blood cells, brain, kidney, heart (in a heart shape), and a planet.

Thanks for taking a peek and comments/suggestions etc all welcomed!
