Firstly let me say ... I had soooooooo much fun doing this.. I haven't touched my clay for over a year.. and its only about the fourth time i have made anything from clay. Its also the first time that it wasn't a gremlin or a fairy that I crafted.

Its made from OZZLE.. an Australian polymer clay,.. I didn't know how it compares to other polymer clays but its a lot cheaper here than sculpey etc and I love that its an Aussie product!!

It was for for the Monthly odd holidays, my swap partner had picked Rose Month so I came up with this..

Earrings,.. my partner likes old stuff.. so that's for the feel I tried to go with,.. she also likes jewel tones.. so I decided to go with red roses instead of any other kind. I read that if you firstly work oil into the clay before you bake then there will be subtle hints of it afterwards... i tried this and thought the baking process took out all the scent.

So then I decided to make a little matching box to go along with it and a scent sachet so then they can get smelly that way!!  Cheesy

The box started life as a plain papermache box... couple of layers of paint later... a date with my nail sander and some gold burnishing that's what i ended up with.  I hand sewed the little sachet and filled it with rose petals and scented oil.

C&C welcome!!! Smiley
