Here's the link for the planter charms that I'll be working on.  After my pains subside enough and I finish preparing my garden I'll start a tutorial, as I really don't use that many things for making these.

Miniature Sarracenia, and Calla lily necklaces.



A vague Howto make the Sarracenias are here. 

Heliamphoras are here. (The Healiamphoras are made the same, just without the lids).

Howto: Calla lilies

I'm still trying to figure out how to do tutorials, heh.

That's pretty awesome and the possible variations on that theme would be endless.  Single planter earrings would be super neat-o too.

What a neat idea!  The planters & plants are so tiny and perfect.  You have mad skills in making miniature things Smiley

Thanks, everyone.

The next one I'm working on, I'm attempting ("attempting" that's the keyword, heh), is three pots of herbs.  Don't have really anything I can use, though. I can finagle onions and chives easily enough, but parsley, basil, etc? Not so much, O_o.  Meh, I'll figure something out.

I'd not say "mad" skills, but I have "magnifying glasses", HAHA.

Thanks everyone.


Edit: EUREKA! I think I finally found out what to do about earrings...



Now just to figure out how to do a tiny vine that would wrap around the wire.

I just updated with the next three I made hoping to sell them.  Fingers crossed I can get into to see a doctor by the end of this next month.  (Have to wait for any returns, Cry ). Eh! I can't wait. Planter pics. (Same link as in the first post, but meh, rewrite it).

Got an idea from someone at the Imgur site to attempt magnets. Plus, I had this idea to do a tiny Adiantum (maidenhair) fern leaf out of 14 gauge copper wire.  These are going to be quite neat.

Maidenhair attempt and the first of a series of designer wall mounted planters that could be arranged geometrically.

Edit: An additional item for the wall mounted planters...And, I forgot to oil the wood on the last piece...Woops...Anyway, any extra images can be found at my imgur album.

Next three are done...
This one is the best one, as I've not been feeling well and had done a horrid job on all of them (Lack of sleep make the pains a tad more fun, yeesh).  Anyhoo, I messed up on this wood pot and made it too long, which gave me the idea to put only two instead of three. I think I kind of like this, and can add it as a variant. 


The next two (posting as links to save on image loading on ya'll's computers, phones, etc, which reminds me I need to thin up some of my posts here,  Shocked).  Anyhoo, tried something different, used brown jute instead of white and I think it works as well.

The first one the wood pot broke, woops, but I decided to leave it and finish it, but it does seem to have some interesting qualities to it, and gives me an idea of attempting a broken pot laying on its side with a plant coming out of spilled soil.

That is so darling! I could see it as a super cute magnet, too.

Ooooh nooooo!  My wife just told me the ones I made for her have become sticky, and I looked over some of the others I made and sure enough, the Krylon finish I sprayed over them reacts with the polymer clay and makes them fairly sticky.  Craaaaaap!

Edit: Understanding Polymer Clay Glaze, Sealer, Varnish

Polymer clay, when cured, is vinyl

Welp, now I know I can make records out of the clays, HA HA HA HA HA!

Either way, attempting to make a couple all out of wood to replace the ones I sent out.

An update to the first post. I finished two necklaces, one with a Sarracenia made from Starburst wrappers (The best color in my opinion), and another with two calla lilies.

(The first post has more information).
