1  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Discussion and Questions / Re: Adding Precious Metal Clay/Art Clay to ready-made ring forms? on: April 14, 2012 08:56:45 PM
It's possible to buy fine silver rings to attach clay to. You can see them here: http://www.palmermetals.co.uk/shop/precious-metal-clay/metal-clay-findings/fine-silver-ring-liners-and-bands.html. This was the first supplier I found on Google, I don't know anything about them at all. These bands are made to use with PMC.

I have a PMC kit but I'm yet to actually make anything with it, so take my advice with a grain of salt. But I'm pretty sure it's completely possible.
2  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Barbie Jewellery on: July 22, 2011 02:46:59 AM
I'm in the process of packing up my house because we're moving. We found a little bit of our Barbie collection that was left over so I went through it to find anything I could use for jewellery or other crafts. So far, this is the jewellery I've made with it.

This was from a ball jointed gymnast Barbie which was already missing its other arm. I detached this one wire wrapped it and added a red Czech glass teardrop.

This is a steak from a Barbie barbecue set which I think came with the camper van we bought.

These are some shoes I found, which I made pierced and threaded head pins through. The beads are vintage moonglow lucite.

My thought was that you could iron them on to white fabric and sew on seed beads etc as extra decoration. Then you could cut them out and back them with something sturdier, perhaps the felt. You can then easily attach jump rings and chain, something like this.

To do it at home you could try painting the details like the whiskers. I can't imagine how they are done commercially, unfortunately.

Part two of my jewellery post - I'm splitting this due to the large amount of pictures.


I really like these resin cake cabochons. They're both sitting on vintage buttons and attached to the ring bases.

These have a few different gemstones, including jade, jasper and quartz.


I got a whole bag of these super cute lampwork beads but they were the only ones that were a pair so I automatically thought of making earrings with them. I might make some similar necklaces with the rest.

I'm so in love with vintage plastic flower/leaf/feather beads.

These have more of the vintage flower beads, and some have glass beads at their ends.

I bought these beads without a particular purpose in mind (I do this far too often), but decided to make them a bit like my other flower hoops. They all have tiny black glass beads at their centres.

I've got a heap of stuff to post, so I thought I'd split it up. These are the bracelets and necklaces.

I've had this pendant sitting around for about a year and finally decided to make something with it. This is what I ended up with. I wanted to do something other than a necklace, given that it would be pretty obvious.

All of these flower stacks are topped with 6mm czech glass beads. I wanted to be consistent.

I really like this colour combination. I did get very close to running out of yellow plastic beads to use, though.

Another favourite colour combination.


I love making these. I've just got to go through my collection to find more filigree first.

I just found this and thought of this post: http://www.jemlibrary.com/jewelry-making/jewelry-making-tutorials/0093-woven-earrings-and-pendant. It's pretty comprehensive imo.

I sell them as they are, but I think they'd look best on a cord personally.

This is lovely. I too wish I had your skill for metal working. It's one of those things on my very long list of things to learn.

These are all lovely. I can't fathom the amount of work that goes into these. They're just gorgeous.
