so...i almost posted this in the recon section of trinkets and jewelry because the chain is made from an old belt that i found at this thrift store oona's but...the rose is itself is new so i figured this would work. but then i got to thinking that the rose is actually made out of sculpey clay so i should post it on the poly clay board, but i am going to bite the bullet and put it here for now!

i made the rose out of sculpey III ivory clay. you can't see it in the terrible pictures that i took but i ran some gold shimmer around the edges of the petals and some peach shimmer on the crease of each petal. i stuck some wire in the back of the rose and attached it to the chain, jumpring style.

this is with the flash so you can get the jist

this is closer up so you can see the rose a little better

and this is even closer

what do you think?

That rose came out really nice! Sculpy is brittle though, so you should be very careful with it. If you like making things like that, you should check out air drying clays. I use Lumina, and it's still bendable after it dries. (They have it on the Joann website, as well as many other polymer clay online stores, but I've never seen it sold in a store. Still, Joann might be worth checking out.) It's a bit of a pain to work with since you have to keep mixing in small amounts of water to keep it alive, and it totally sucks for sculpting, but for flowers it's perfect. And, since you don't have to worry about things breaking, you can roll it out very thin. I go as far as #6 on my pasta machine (between two sheets of wax paper so it doesn't react with the metal), and then I hand roll it on a smooth surface to make it even thinner and to iron out imperfections. Ahh I should really get off my butt and post something! Cheesy
