Polymer Clay Bail Tutorial

Polymer Clay Bail Tutorial

I’ve added a quick tutorial onto my tutorials page showing you how to make a bail from polymer clay for a pendant. I love this way of finishing the back of a pendant as it means I don’t have to add any additional findings. I use a 6mm knitting needle to form my bail which means I can thread most things through it so I can change the cord I hang my pendant on easily. You can find the tutorial here

Big, bold and colourful earring fun!

Big, bold and colourful earring fun!

Here are some of my latest earrings. Small studs and some larger dangles. I made one big cane that started out round. It was about 10cm in diameter when finished it. Most of the colours were from the Pantone Fall/Winter 2018 collection colours with the exception of the bright pink. I am not quite sure what made me use the pink – it really isn’t my favourite as you will probably know if you’ve seen my other work! But I think it...

Faux wooden Heart

Faux wooden Heart

I’m not generally big on hearts but I couldn’t resist adapting my faux marquetry split pebble design into a heart. It’s very tactile too as I have finished it with a beautiful satin finish. I am still very fond of the faux marquetry, I ought to make some more pieces!   Thank you to everyone who took part on my earring giveaway on Instagram.  The winners were bluemallee and Nevenka Sabo
