1  POTTERY, CERAMICS, POLYMER CLAY / Polymer Clay: Completed Projects / Crazy-Cool Dinosaur Necklace in Teal on: March 21, 2008 08:10:39 PM
This came out so well I think I have to make a ton of them. The hardest part about making this was getting the right shape down. I love him to death, what do you all think?

Thanks for looking!  Smiley
2  POTTERY, CERAMICS, POLYMER CLAY / Polymer Clay: Completed Projects / New Robot Friend on: March 20, 2008 11:54:30 PM
This is Milo, he's my second polymer clay robot, and friend of James. He's a bit short and stout at 3 inches tall, but totally lovable and makes a great pendant!

3  POTTERY, CERAMICS, POLYMER CLAY / Polymer Clay: Completed Projects / Jointed Robot Pendant (edited to add completed pic) on: March 18, 2008 07:44:21 AM
Not quite a "completed project", but pretty close. This is the first in a line of robot jewelry I'm going to be making. Each will be jointed and completely unique!

This is James. He's 3 inches tall and will make a pretty adorable pendant. I've still got to make a face for him and sand down a couple parts, but I just couldn't wait to take pictures! I'm thinking maybe rhinestone eyes.

Here he is on some knitting.

Another picture and more details in my blog.
Thanks for looking!

It isn't the best picture, but here he is finished! I decided against adding a mouth, his little yellow eyes were so cute all on their own! I finished the second robot today (Milo) and I'll take and post pictures of him when there's some light. Probably in his own thread.

4  CRAFTY BUSINESS ADVICE / Get Product and Website Opinions / Wire bangle bracelet with gem chips on: February 27, 2008 01:09:10 AM
I'm not sure what to call this style..."woven" maybe? Anyway, this thing took tons of wire to make, and is covered in an assortment of gemstone chips including garnets, turquoise, rose quartz, amethyst, and quartz crystals along with some mystery stones. I added three small white buttons to accent it. What do you think?

I'm actually thinking about making more of these to sell, any suggestions on a fair price?
5  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / Handful of collage pendants on: December 13, 2007 02:55:49 PM
I've been in a pendant-making frenzy! Here are some of the results. All the images and text were taken from magazines. There are 3 that aren't pictured here, 2 that I'm keeping, and 1 I'm changing the text on. It's going to be hard to see these go, especially "Vibrant and True", but you've gotta make a living somehow  Cheesy

6  POTTERY, CERAMICS, POLYMER CLAY / Polymer Clay: Completed Projects / Second in my heart jewelry series- heart necklace on: December 12, 2007 12:37:54 PM
The pictures aren't great, but you get the idea. I made this one for myself and love it to death. It's about an inch and a half in length from top to bottom and is made from red glitter polymer clay.

7  CRAFTY BUSINESS ADVICE / Get Product and Website Opinions / Recycled sellables? on: November 12, 2007 08:58:37 AM
I've experimenting with making recycled jewelry/accessories and am wondering if they are at all sellable. One is this recycled metals flower thing.

It's made of pop tabs, recycled old metal beads, and a few random plastic beads. The pop tabs are woven together with jewelry wire, and the beads are connected that way too so there's no threat of anything coming apart. This one was my first attempt and I attached it to a ribbon (it can be worn as a hair accessory, bracelet, or necklace) but in the future I'd like to attach them to pins so they can be worn as whatever.

My question is is this sellable? Is there anything in the design I should change before offering these to sell? What's a fair price range? All in all this one took me about 5 hours, maybe a little more.

Any feedback is much appreciated!
8  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Recycled metal flower thing on: November 09, 2007 05:36:48 PM
I made this flower out of pop tabs and recycled old metal beads. I also used the pink plastic bead and a few smaller metallic plastic beads. I ended up super gluing it to that black ribbon so it can be worn as a necklace,  hair accessory, or bracelet.

I'm really happy with how it turned out and plan on making more, but in the future I think I'll make them into pins so they can be worn as whatever.
9  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / Mother of all twisted wire rings and smaller dome ring (new pics!) on: November 09, 2007 01:36:47 PM
The main event...

Biggest wire ring I've made to date. Actually, the biggest ring period. I'm really proud of this one. I have been known to refer to it as my "baby"  Cheesy.  It's got a dozen assorted blue and clear beads that are sort of hard to see, but sparkle beautifully  Smiley

Small domed ring made from purple artistic wire and silver tone copper wire. I like the futuristic feel of this thing.
10  POTTERY, CERAMICS, POLYMER CLAY / Polymer Clay: Completed Projects / Super Mario hat earring box (lots-o-pics) on: November 09, 2007 12:28:51 PM
That's a terrible way of describing it but most accurate. This is one of my favorite things I've ever made by far. I'm really happy with how it turned out and also surprised considering it's so different from what I usually make. Made for the Retro Video Game Swap.

(sorry about the cat! Cosmo refused to leave me and my picture-taking alone. Maybe something to do with this..)

Cosmario. My happy, mushroom-eating plumber cat.

The inside of the box with a goomba earring I made (also for the swap) inside.

And just for fun...

Me being a huge dork modelling the Princess Peach crown I made. It unfortunately didn't make it through the post without incident, but was a first attempt. I plan on making more crowns in the future and they'll be made of tougher stuff.

Let me know what you think!
Sorry for the pic overload, I'm just really proud of this.
