Now life is slowly getting back to normal and the last of my relatives leave today I have some time to post to my poor neglected blog.
You may remember I’ve become a Design Team Member for my lovely friend Mel and her wonderful molds. I made these pieces a few weeks ago but with the passing of my mum and a house full of guests here for her funeral I was unable to take photos and post.
First up is a macramé bracelet I made using this mold.
I used turquoise premo clay and continued the neon theme with orange embroidery cotton for the band.
I baked the piece laying across a small glass jar to give it a slight curve so it sits on the wrist nicely.
The next piece is from this mold. I’m giving birds and owls the flick (temporarily) and starting a love affair with rabbits.
I used Ecru premo clay and after he was baked I coloured him with alcohol inks and then sanded back a little to highlight his features. He’s cute isn’t he.
Brass chain, round connectors and a fancy schmancy brass connector and some small dyed fire agate beads in blues and caramel wired together. Long enough to slip over your head so I didn’t use a toggle and clasp.
