It seems an age since I last wrote a blog post. In all honesty I haven’t had much new to show as I ended up making more Leopard print jewellery for my Etsy shop and I don’t want to get too boring by showing the same thing over and over. I always underestimate how long it takes me to make the polymer clay jewellery.
I do have a few little new bits to show now though and some pretty cool news.
First up was a little experiment with a terrazzo style earring. I was feeling enthused with the hint of Spring and wanted some earrings that would work well in the Spring/Summer months.
I made a few pairs of these so I have one and the rest are in my Etsy shop.
As you will see in a minute I am still spending many hours with Leopard print one way or another. I did a quick leopard print heart doodle with some new Posca pens back in February and thought it would look great in my Redbubble shop.
It was re-drawn using Promarkers in a bigger format.
I thought it easier to show in a Redbubble mock up to give a better idea for what I was going for. I am tempted to buy it on a mug for myself.
Last up, before I remember anything else, is the exciting news bit – I was asked by Beads Direct if I would like to write a beading tutorial for them. I had to use their products and it had to be an animal print. What else would I do? Yup, it was always going to be leopard print.
For the tutorial I have put a link here. Their photos are also far better than my efforts.
That’s it for now. I’ll try not to leave it too long before blogging again.
Love the cheerful colors in the earrings!
Thank you. I was particular in picking some fun colours. What doesn’t come across in the pictures are that some of the colour have a pearlescent finish and it is very pretty.
Congrats. You are really good at what you do.
Ah, thank you 🙂
Those earrings are adorable!
Thank you 🙂
Those earrings are so cute, and how exciting to be asked to do a tutorial!
Thank you. It was so exciting to be asked 🙂
