I made this!

I've been experimenting with Polymer Clay and I've spent this evening making this piece, which is a brooch. Not the best picture, but you get the idea!

Bedtime now, I think...

New pendants and beads

Good day to you all!

So I've been working hard to re- launch Once and I've made some new beads. I've decided to specialise within my Polymer Clay making, so you'll be seeing the fruits of my labour over the next few weeks.

Here is one pendant that I've just finished. The process of making beads and pendants from the clay is really long and has lots of stages.

The first is conditioning and preparing the clay. Next, mixing colours and creating the effects you want. Then shaping the piece and curing it in the oven. Then, finishing the piece by sanding and buffing! It usually takes many hours altogether...

Anyway, see you all soon!

I am BACK!

Hello all and I hope this post finds you well. I have had a few months off doing jewellery because we have been relocating. We are finally settled and I have had the chance to photograph all my available jewellery, so head over to my Facebook page to take a look at my albums. Here are a few choice pieces that are available NOW!
