Purple Kaleidoscope Jewellery

Purple Kaleidoscope Jewellery

I realised quite how much blue jewellery I make so I am trying to broaden my colour palette a bit. I asked on facebook what colour people thought I should work with and I got lots of brilliant (and some quite scary) suggestions! I decided to start gently with some purple and here’s some purple kaleidoscope cane jewellery I made.       Talking of facebook I am going to run a giveaway there soon – when I reach 2000...

I’m still enjoying blue and white kaleidoscope canes…

I’m still enjoying blue and white kaleidoscope canes…

I do really rather like blue and white it seems. I couldn’t resist another blue and white kaleidoscope cane pendant. This one is a little smaller than the last one I showed you. There are matching earrings too but I haven’t assembled them yet, I much prefer the polymer bit of jewellery making! They’ll be available for sale at my next exhibition which isn’t until November at the Totterdown Arts Trail so I’ve got...

Blue and White Kaleidoscope Pendant

Using tutorials/books week 1

Using tutorials/books week 1

I randomly picked a publication from my bookshelf to try out something new (my new year challenge – to use the wonderful resources sat under my nose!) and picked the magazine From Polymer to Art – Orange. A quick flick through and I chose to try out a project by Fabi. Her pendant in the magazine was orange and green – not really my colours so I changed the colours to some more ‘me’ ones from some left over clay I...
