Polymer clay heaven

Well long time no blog and since then we have moved house and I have almost finished decorating new home and am getting ready to turn our brick built shed into my new studio,something I have wanted for a long time.

So I am just going to add a few photos of some creative things I have made since my last post!

Thanks for reading and I will try and blog at least once a week

Clay On.........

I do like blogging but to be honest, I will think about blogging this and blogging that and before I know it,a few weeks have passed!

So with out further ado here are some of my latest projects I have done of late.

The piece above is from a project out of the March issue of beads and beyond magazine and this was my take on that project. I do love working with polymer clay as you can make what you like and manipulate the clay to that way you want it to go,never mind the amount of finishes you can give it,when it has been cured.

This book came about after I did another very similar and a lady asked if I would do her one,she could use as a book of shadows,she really liked my other one I made and asked if I could also take in to consideration the book from the film "HOCUS POCUS" So here is the book I created using and old, new 2009 page for page diary and polymer clay,and lots of paints and a some imagination!

I belong to a jewelley making group on facebook and since joining have made friends with some extremely talented ladies and gents. One lady in particular, Neena Shilvock makes jaw dropping jewellery made from wires and beautiful gems and stones and has a very unique style. You can check out her beautiful creations here

Other things I have made

This is a row of houses altered art for a swap group on Facebook

A charm necklace I have called 
"Gypsy Summer" loaded with beads and charms and added into this piece are handmade polymer beads and handmade friendly plastic beads. I road tested this  to Tesco's last night and loved it, very bright and chunky piece.

This is another piece I made recently handmade polymer beads and strung together with waxed cotton thong
and then to lighten the piece I have added acrylic crackle and turquoise glass beads beads and Tibetan spacers.

Well I think that will do for now until next time folks
Thanks for reading and in the wise words of Vickie Sixsmith
CLAY ON people

Busy busy........doing this and that!

Hubby had a few days off and I thought,whilst he was home I could hamper him to do a few jobs!
We went and got a new washing machine and also I swayed him to take me to a shop that sold Fimo, oh yes!
Got home plumbed in washing machine and it has only just stopped today lol

We also re-grouted the bathroom and hubby did some round the house repairs- I had a few I had clocked up but now they are all done,the one's I wanted him to do.

Yesterday I had a play with my clay and made a few more jewellery bits, I had seen a tut on transparent clay and making beads,so had a jolly good go at playing with that!

Here is  what I managed to do

Can you believe that this stone centre pic is clay?????

Windy,windy day

Well the wind is whistling around at gale force today and we had planned to go out,not sure that we will now! Will have to shop for my washing machine online, which is a shame as I wanted to see what it actually looked like. I know a washing machine is a washing machine but hay ho! Oh no, hubby just asked if I was getting ready, so off we go then!

Hope everyone else has a good day,it seems I am off out shopping,now to see if I can guide him to a shop that sells craft stuff........mmwwhhhaaaaaaaaa
