Holly bracelets

I have tried a play-doh technique invented by Idit Zoota for making canes of unusual shapes (you can read more about it and see videos at Yonat's page), and I came up with these holly leaves.

I've added some red glass beads and finished leaves into festive christmasy bracelets.

Faux polymer clay pebbles

I forgot all about these pebbles I made some time ago. One of my Etsy buyers asked me about them recently, which is why I took the beads out of the box and drilled holes in them.
They are very pleasant to touch, very smooth, and have a vice soft shine, being polished with Dremel.

I do not know what to do with them, though :)) Should I make an elastic bracelet? Or something on a rubber cord?..

You can see all of my pebbles separatly with explanation of additives here

Flowers sampler

I have been tidying up my box with canes, and I decided to use up all my old petal canes. Here what I made with them :) These are all pendants.

All flowers separately. Which one is your favorite? :))

"Fence flowers" bracelets and more

I have finally finished a few items and assembled them into jewellery.
I call these bracelets "fence bracelets", because they remind me of fences, almost hidden behind tall flowers :))

All five bracelets on my hand. All together they look like a knight's armor :))

I think, I've mentioned before that Jael's works inspired me to start playing with polymer clay. Now I have tried to make "bone" beads like hers (and Karen Lewis's, of course :) ), using my canes :)


More items to come tomorrow! :)))

I had some leftovers of blue petal cane, which I used to make tiny blue flowers. I added a few slices of leaf cane, combined them all together, and made this bookmark.
I think it is very sunny and summery bookmark :))

I was thinking on how to attach seed bead in the middle of each flower. The head pins have too large heads, which hide the seed bead. So I decided to make a loop at the end of a pin with a seed bead, fixed in that loop.

Continuing a fruit theme

I liked making charm bracelets, so I decided to make a few more of those fruit bracelets :)
These are three bracelets on my hand:

There is one of them:

I also made some earrings to match the bracelets, with miniature fruit slices :)

I love fruits :))

Hair clips

I found a few metallic blanks for hair clips at home, which I immediately covered with clay :)) Here are the first six hair clips, sanded and varnished:

I loved making fruit canes! I've made my first bracelet with hanging charms, love it myself! :)))
