Say farewell to 2014!

Well...2014 was a step in the right direction. I've now opened my etsy shop, had an OK start but looking to ramp it up come 2015. Hopefully that will include posting to my blog a bit more often...lol...well I did say hopefully, right?
To end the year I thought I'd share one of my new favorites with you it's the mod melts mold "gems" & I'm really having fun playing with it. I've used UV resin & Polymer clay both & I love the results. So look for more faceted "stones" in my upcoming jewelry designs. Some of them have glitter, foil, gold leaf, alcohol ink & even embossing powder! I've got a short up-coming video on the basics of how to use the mold & I'll be doing more with this little "gem" I'm sure!

Thanks so much for stopping by one last time in 2014...see you next year!

There's Nothing Like a Bit of Bling!

It's no secret that I love sparkle...the more sparkly the better...lol. But not everyone likes glitter everywhere. My Hubby will come home & say "you've got glitter on" or "you've been playing with glitter again, haven't you?" ...lol...because I'll have glitter on my face(my hands, my clothes...lol) somewhere! Well the next solution is...glass rhinestones! Yes those little hot fix rhinestones make great embellishments in your polymer clay projects! Problem solved...well except how to use them. A little Bake-N-Bond does the job very nicely! So here's just a few of the pendants I've done using these gorgeous little "gems"...

Dragonfly Dreams

Butterfly Breezes

I think they are wonderful & so sparkly! So if you looking to add some sparkle to your polymer clay jewelry give these little "gems" a try. You may just be glad you did!
I've got a tutorial on the Butterfly pendant on my YT channel for anyone interested.
Thanks again for stopping by...Till Next Time!

What's your Birthstone/Signs of the Zodiac

Well it's almost the New Year & that means a fresh start! So I thought I'd start it out with the 12 Zodiac signs... I'm a Leo!







These were all created by hand with Premo Sculpey by Polyform. I used a few glass rhinestone & Czech glass & seed beads but other than that they are all polymer clay. I really had a blast creating these! So what's your sign?
Thank you so much for stopping by...Till Next Time!
