I just realised I haven’t posted for over 2 weeks. Lots of things have happened since my last post – the terrible Norway massacre, the ongoing phone hacking scandal, Amy Winehouse’s death ( I love Amy’s voice and “Frank” is one of my all time favourite albums – I think it’s actually better than her more successful Back to Black) and the ongoing riots in England (ongoing as I write).
On a positive note – My little sister visited us for a week, which was nice and I have therefore not been able to create any new jewellery in that time. We went to Bath with her, unfortunately arrived a bit late due to late departure and a massive traffic jam in front of the tunnel near Newport, but my hubby bought be a very cute cat necklace – I normally don’t buy jewellery for obvious reasons, but I really loved the design of it. After my sister went back I had to catch up a lot on making polymer clay pendants.
I decided to create animal themed jewellery, mainly because I love animals esp. cats (no surprise there) and would wear these myself. So now you can find a lot of cute earrings – horses, dinosaurs, cats, flying horses, elephants, tortoises, turtles, owls, dragonflies, hummingbirds and howling wolves which you can all find here. I will add more earrings in the near future.
I have also started to create animal pendants using molds I bought and also molds I made myself. At the moment I have cats, Scotty dogs, flamingos, horses, kiwis, seahorses, but I am hoping to create other type of animal pendants and earrings.
As I am writing my first pendants are actually drying from their first coat of varnish – they will get 2-3 coats, because I need to seal in the mica powder that gives them a beautiful shimmer. I really hope you will like them.
Unfortunately one of my pendants broke while trying to file them. It was one of my more delicate pieces which fell on my floor in the conservatory. So I have to make that one again and be a bit more careful!
Once these pendants are all varnished I will upload them on my website. Next on my to-do list are bat and skull earrings and pendants as well as steampunk pendants. I have a bag full of tiny watch bits and pieces I will use for my pendants.
That’s it for now , thanks for reading– but before I forget: I would like to know from my readers which animals (apart from cats) they like me to try and make pendants of.
