Coiled Kaleidoscope Cane Bangle

Coiled Kaleidoscope Cane Bangle

A square cross section bangle made from Kato Polyclay. The coiled design allows it to open a little to get your hand through so it can be quite chunky but still sit close to your wrist. Decorated with a kaleidoscope cane. And it’s not blue! Don’t worry I will come back to blue soon enough . I will be teaching this as a workshop in Rome next spring. More details will follow… I am also working on the plans for Polymania 2016...

Giving up the coke can – bangles almost solved

Giving up the coke can – bangles almost solved

You may recall I’ve been having problems making bangles. I’ve had trouble with them cracking. In my usual style I did a little experiment to see how curing on different ‘bangle forms’ changed things. I had a suggestion from Jo who writes the FloRaeMe blog that perhaps the coke can being flimsy might move, undermining the strength of the bangle and that I should try using cardboard tube. I tried to make a cardboard tube...

To catch up with some people I now consider old friends and to meet some new friends too! And even better I get to see a lot of them again this Sunday at the London Polymer Clay Group...

Must investigate. Also I wrote a long wordy post on bangle problems – blogger has probably chosen not to publish it cause...

Latest jewellery – and it’s all for me!

Latest jewellery – and it’s all for me!

I haven’t had any new jewellery for myself for a while now, I was busy making sale stock and completing orders. So far this year things have been quieter so finally made myself some new things. Here’s some of them 3 blue and white skinny bangles. I am road testing these to see how they strong they are. Baked them extra long to try and make sure they were strong! Blue and white oval cabochon pendant, I do love this simple blue and...

Busy polymer clay day for all the family

Busy polymer clay day for all the family

We have been busy playing with polymer clay for a lot of this afternoon (me with my bad foot up on a chair and lots of pain killers). Here are some things we made James made an X wing (from star wars) Daisy made a spoon, I gave her the bits she is too young(not quite 4) to be making roses on her own, yet…. I made my first kalidescope cane which was originally going to cover a base to hold some pens for gifts but I had the wrong type and...
