1  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / Dollhouse miniature cake stand on: May 28, 2014 02:05:44 AM
I made a miniature cake stand from a broken pendant and a bead cap. Smiley The cake is a Re-ment from Minnie and Daisy's cafe set I think.

If anyone wants to see the simple DIY project, it's up on my blog today. http://beadlady.info/diy-miniature-cake-stand/

I made this braided loaf for my daughter's Sylvanian Families Watermill Bakery. Anyone else collecting Sylvanians/Calico Critters? Cheesy

I uploaded a mini series of DIY tutorials for mini food on my blog, if anyone's interested. http://beadlady.info/diy-mini-series-make-your-own-dollhouse-miniature-food/
3  POTTERY, CERAMICS, POLYMER CLAY / Polymer Clay: Completed Projects / Happy, shabby chic Inchie Winchies on: July 03, 2013 11:24:46 AM
I haven't been crafting for months now because I got too busy with my baby girl. So I am very proud to finally come up with something new!

I call these pendants Inchie Winchies. I tried to make them look like a mood board or collage of fabric swatches, ribbon, and scrap paper. But that's all polymer clay. I didn't use any molds, all done from scratch.

I hope to make more!

I blogged about these here: http://beadladyangeli.blogspot.com/2013/07/new-polymer-clay-pendants.html?m=1 More photos there. Smiley
4  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

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

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.

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

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.
7  POTTERY, CERAMICS, POLYMER CLAY / Polymer Clay: Completed Projects / Angel hearts on: January 12, 2010 12:27:40 PM
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?
8  POTTERY, CERAMICS, POLYMER CLAY / Polymer Clay: Completed Projects / Polymer clay and brass filigree (Updated with new pic) on: November 17, 2009 04:19:20 AM
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.


Step 1. Make a clay ball.

Step 8. Add other embellishments (like the 2D cupcake from the previous tutorial: https://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!

I would like to thank thenoodlebowl for posting a tutorial on her site some time ago.  It is the take-off point of this tutorial.  http://www.thenoodlebowl.com/jongleur/howto_juri.html

I went crazy and did embroidery - on clay!  Tortured my fingers, now they're swollen.  Tongue  Blogged a little about it here: http://beadladyangeli.blogspot.com/2009/02/something-new-polymer-clay-embroidery.html
