faux beads!

Here are some Polymer Clay beads I made that have the look of ceramic and lampwork beads. I love earthy colors as you can see. It was fun experimenting with a different style of bead.

Christmas Ornament

Christmas is around the corner!
I made this kaleidoscope cane in Christmas colors without really thinking what to do with it. So this is what I came up with. It is the first Polymer Clay Christmas ornament I ever made. I think it turned out quite nice.

Polymer Clay Covered Crochet Hooks
I covered the handles of these brand new crochet hooks with pieces of my own Polymer Clay canes. It was then sanded and polished to a high sheen. As you can see the more colorful the better :-)
The handle feels nice and smooth and makes it easier to handle. The colors will never wear off.

DIY Earring display!
I had my first show and didn't like the way I displayed my earrings with these flimsy little cards, and the self made rack that kept on falling over.
This is what I came up with and I am very happy with the way it turned out.
For the base I used scrap clay that I always have lying around. I covered it with a nice sheet of clay, went to the nearest Home Depot and got myself some very sturdy wire, still soft enough to bend though. I bend it into shape, and stuck them into the clay, baked it( for the clay to harden) and it was ready to go. It fits 24 pair of earrings and the base is heavy enough so it wont fall over.

Polymer Clay Covered Pens
I love making these pens! They are fun and colorful, and would make a perfect gift. The design is applied with the millefiori technique. Thin slices of Polymer clay canes are layered on a polymer clay background. After backing I applied a coat of varnish.

Polymer Clay Tins
These are my newest items. The tins are covered with my kaleidoscope canes. They are hand sanded and polished to give the them a nice shiny surface.

For making jewelry out of Polymer Clay these spacer beads are a perfect addition to any jewelry piece. Some of the colorful beads or lentil beads would just be too overpowering and sometimes need some uni colored beads. They would also make a nice jewelry piece without the use of other beads.

I love Scrapbooking!!
Just as much fun as scrapbooking itself, is to make the embellishments. Buttons, charms, paper clips, almost anything can be personalized and color matched with Polymer Clay. These are definitely embellishments that can't be found in stores.

I wanted to show of some of my favorite pendants that I made. Combining the wire wrapping with Polymer Clay pendants is a lot of fun, and makes them somewhat unique... different.
