Purple Flowers,pendants, micromesh and pens

My mum got more birthday presents made by me. I wasn’t quite sure how my disc necklace would work out so I went back to something I knew would work just in case – a flowery cabochon. Again in purples. It turned out very well, I’m very pleased with it. She ended up with both. I recently bought some new micromesh sheets in the 8000 and 12000 grits. Previously I had the basic hobby kit which went up to 6000. The difference in the...

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...

At the London Polymer Clay Group meeting on Sunday, Rebecca Thickbroom  (who is one of the organisers of the Polymer, Pamper, Play event I am very much looking forward to!) showed some beautiful choker necklaces...

Signature Cane

The main demonstration at the London Polymer Clay Group was by on making signature canes Susan Rimmer, thanks Susan it was an interesting demonstration.  I have been thinking about signing my work and did play about with a stamp made from bent bits of coke can back in the autumn but I wasn’t happy with the results, it wasn’t obviously a signature and I mainly sanded it out the few times I tried it. Off course the first one I made...

Name badge

Name badge

I was lucky enough to be able to go to the London Polymer Clay Group meeting today (thanks to my parents for looking after the children as hubby was busy shock horror!). I decided to make myself a name badge yesterday evening so it was made in a bit of a rush (one day I will learn not to be so chaotic but until then last minute it is….). The photo too was taken in a rush and the lighting is terrible. It is on my list of things to do in...

Pasta Machine Thickness comparison table

Since I started improving my polymer clay work by following tutorials and going to workshops I have found it very confusing when people give you a pasta machine thickness as the different brands (particularly Atlas and Imperia the main 2 quality machines) don’t compare easily. I have an Imperia machine which I love, it is easy to take apart to clean, only requiring to remove the end plate on one end (the one without the knob) with 1 screw...
