A spring themed polymer clay tutorial using translucent clay and tinting it with alcohol inks to make a floral necklace.
I think the title of this pretty much sums up what this post is about! Etsy told us (how these folk know I don’t know) that burnt orange was going to be popular this summer so it would be a little silly not to make a few bits of jewellery in this seasons colours. I… Continue reading Burnt Orange Floral Earrings
I made these some time ago but never got around to blogging them (mainly because I’m pretty rubbish at blogging at the moment!) My aim was to give the impression of a delicate lace pattern but in polymer clay. I figured that using black for the ‘lace’ and translucent to support the pattern was the… Continue reading Polymer Clay Lace
It seems five minutes since I was blogging about my Christmas decorations and now here we are, nearly half way though January and life has returned back to normal. I think part of the reason that the whole time passed so quickly was because I knew that just after Christmas my leopard print jewellery was… Continue reading Mollie Makes and Leopard Print!
Whilst I was preparing for the craft fair in June I sat looking at my clay and paired up a deep purple and summery turquoise. I decided they would look lovely, together, as feathers. I now realise in hindsight that the colour combination wasn’t pure fluke as my daughters waterproof coat is turquoise with a… Continue reading Fimo Feathers
Hello, I have no idea when I last blogged and I have to admit that I hesitated before sitting down to write today. I am going to be 100% honest and admit that I am struggling to fit everything in at the moment and, with so many balls that I seemingly have to keep in… Continue reading Little Fishes
In accordance to my new year post I am staying focused on my Etsy shop and trying to keep ahead with seasons and events. I seem to gravitate more and more towards my polymer clay at the moment but I think that it’s because I can create whatever odd idea I have (within reason!) as… Continue reading New Jewellery – The Blossom Collection
I’ve spent the last few days updating my Etsy shop with some new bits and realised that I didn’t get round to sharing the new colours I made using the watercolour polymer clay technique. I loved the blue/green collection so much I had to try it again using warmer colours perfect for autumn but would… Continue reading Watercolour Clay Part 2
When I was preparing for the craft fair in October/November I decided to work on a monochrome collection of jewellery to contrast with all the colourful pieces I had previously made. I always like to work with colour but appreciate that not everyone feels the same way. I had seen two ideas for polymer clay… Continue reading Monochrome Jewellery
Hello! I am a big believer in trying to combine learned techniques with new ways of working. I have made galaxy inspired backgrounds in card making a few times and always loved the results (such as this one – rubbish photo but you get the idea) but since I am now totally in love with… Continue reading Galaxy Jewellery
