1  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / Bronze clay cluster charm necklace on: June 20, 2011 01:27:47 PM
I made this for a friend's birthday. Its made from bronze clay and a selection of glass and clossione beads.

I had a lot of fun making the bronze charms and putting the piece together. It is the first thing like this I have made.

Here are the charms before I got the piece finished Smiley

I have a tutorial on my blog if folks are interested, not posted it here because it got a bit epic!

Comments and critique especially welcome x

3  POTTERY, CERAMICS, POLYMER CLAY / Polymer Clay: Completed Projects / Monolith Pendant and Bayonetta inspired piece on: May 08, 2011 03:43:44 AM
Hola everyone Smiley

I love making faux rock stuff and I accidentally bought a vintage fimo book on ebay. It had loads of project in it incorporating chains and I just had to try them out Smiley

I have dubbed this my monolith pendant because its just got some kinda implaccable feel to it Smiley

and this is inspired by Bayonetta who is a video game character

She is a super cool dark witch with magical hair who wears black, has red ribbons in her hair and golden chains Smiley

As always, any comments and critique is super welcome and hope everyone is enjoying their weekend Smiley

4  POTTERY, CERAMICS, POLYMER CLAY / Polymer Clay: Discussion and Questions / A Swap-like proposition! on: March 21, 2011 09:52:47 AM
Inspired by a comment on a topic I started, I am proposing a swap between us folk on the polymer clay board Smiley

I would like to organise/participate in a 'texture swap'

Texture plates are easy to make, use up scraps and are unique to the artist who made them, also light to put in the post/mail.

What do you think guys?

5  POTTERY, CERAMICS, POLYMER CLAY / Polymer Clay: Completed Projects / Buttons and texture plates :) on: March 19, 2011 05:50:31 AM
Not super happy with these but need to get back into the habit of posting craftiness Smiley

Some buttons....

I was glazing them up with Kato Liquid clay and accidentally over cooked them with my heatgun.

Plus here are some texture plates Smiley

I was aiming for a rickety steampunky look with the larger plate. My favourite is the screw plate though methinks.

There is a mini tutorial over at my blog as well.

It would be really cool if other folks uploaded pics of their texture plates and or buttons into this thread Smiley

I also welcome some comments and criticism, although from my point of view these need lots of criticism lol!

Happy Saturday folks

6  POTTERY, CERAMICS, POLYMER CLAY / Polymer Clay: Completed Projects / Big swirly charm bracelet goodness :) (image heavy) on: February 07, 2011 04:39:48 AM
I have made some charm bracelets for my friend in the states and wanted to share my shinyness Smiley

She wanted me to put her special rune on them and some gemstones so they have tigerseye, amethyst, peridot and unknown blue stone (!)

Mrs Blue

Ms Red

Miss Purple

And some beady close ups Smiley

I love the lentil swirl technique and this is the first time I have used it for charm beads. Makes them super chunky and fun.

Sorry my photography is so rubbish, its something I cannot get the hang of.

Comments and critique would be really welcome, especially picture related!

7  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / Silver clay, round two! DING! on: February 07, 2011 04:27:33 AM
After my first go, I couldn't resist using the rest of the clay in my starter pack

I will do a stage by stage on my blog at some point but here are the shinies Cheesy

This is an amulet with my friend's rune inscribed into it. I have put amethyst, tigers eye and peridot on there to complement the shield design Smiley I really hope she likes it. I posted it Friday so have to wait ages for it to arrive in America! She doesn't check this forum (I think) so should still be a surprise.

This is a squiggly ammonite charm. I really want it to look like its been dug out of some shaman's ancient burial site by enterprising archeologists. So I really encouraged the clay to crack as I worked it and then smoothed it back together with water so it was strong enough to be worked and sintered and stuff.

Comments and critique very welcome Smiley
8  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / First silver clay pieces :) on: January 29, 2011 05:30:01 AM
Hey guys, had a bit of a rubbish week so decided to crack open the silver clay kit I got for my birthday (four years ago) eek.

I wanted to do a leaf texture type piece and a really battered (in appearance) triangular spiral.

I used the patina fluid in the kit but mixed it up a bit strong and made my studio smell of eggs  Undecided

In these piccies I have put a sterling silver snake chain on them and the worlds biggest jump rings (gonna swap them) annoyingly I used too strong a flash so you cant see the oxidisation but I am really pleased Smiley

I really like the leaf Smiley

I made this one for me really, but my neck is too big for the chain so going to have to get another one before I can wear it.

All in all feeling much Purkier for having a go. I really want to get my hands on some bronzeclay now Smiley

Comments and criticism would be really welcome, cos its only my first go with the material. Theres more piccies and a vague tutorial on my blog Smiley
9  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Party Planning / A Pirates vs Ninjas Party on: August 06, 2009 05:10:24 PM

For my oh-so-grown-up 23rd birthday party I wanted something fun. Not having had a party (for my birthday) since I was five, I went with something childish but also potentially rather sexy and glamorous.

Sounds good yeah?

My darling other half hasnt done any organising (I micro-managed his party a month ago lol) and well, I have 24 hours to pull a ninja and pirate themed decor scheme out of my arse. Any suggestions oh mighty party planners of craftster?

I am thinking, pirate flags and kimono fabric, to give a sense of orient and high seas. I have some lovely giant fans, a kimono hanging on the wall and lots of swords (lots of swords lol).

I am good with polymer clay and relatively good with painting on canvases, was thinking maybe painting a pirate map or ninja scroll.

Have a very talented friend making a pirate ship cake, which helps. I am good with the food and kinda took control of that ages ago lol.

Any ideas guys? I know its hardly a lot of notice!

Not got much to say really, erm a variety of techniques. Would love some comments and critiques, in need of affirmation with regards my work. Having a bit of a tough time.

Gonna start claying again soon, setting up my workspace this weekend hopefully, hope you are all well
