Bridal Watch

Continuing on from my other bridal pieces I have started a couple of watches. When I got married I never wore a watch, so was constantly asking in a panic "what time is it now?" So I thought that making matching watches to team up with my bridal tiara's and jewellery might be something other brides might be interested in....

Bridal set

I've been working on a bit of a bridal range this year. Hope to show a couple more bits soon.

This set consist's of clear quartz, swarovski crystals and 6 & 8 mm Swarovski pearls... there's a couple of stardust beads thrown in for extra dazzle. Both are finished with a sterling silver clasp and extender chain.

Polymer clay bangle

Made this one a while ago, used a coke can for the base, this one worked out alright, although I made one other that cracked and another one the colour just wasn't right after I baked it... This was made using a bullseye cane that I made a mess of (forgot to put the darker middle bit in! But I was quite happy with the result.

Been a while!

I knew I would do it, totally forget to blog.... but I'm gonna try and make an effort to blog at least once a week...
Well here's some of my most recent "makes" the top pic is of a bridal bracelet, using 6mm Swarovski pearls and AB crystals... hope to add it to my etsy, but want a better pic.
Second one is a necklace made using my own polymer clay beads and 14mm glass pearls, I love those beads...
Third one is my play on a necklace I saw at the Big Bead Show in Sandown racecourse last year, the original design just used all 14mm pearls, but I added some glass and a little metal, I love the chunkiness of this piece....
I've been on a buying ban for a while now, so I am trying to use up what I have, so the last piece is made using another of my own polymer clay beads as a focal, a mixture of hematite and czech glass makes this asymetrical necklace..
